Carnegie UpdatesBeginning Monday, April 27, 2009

Carnegie Library will no longer be a circulating library. This means customers will need to visit Kennedy or Maring-Hunt Libraries to check out books, magazines and other materials.

Even though library materials can’t be checked out at Carnegie, customers can still return materials in the convenient drop box in Carnegie’s parking lot.

Carnegie’s popular free computer lab will

remain open during regular Carnegie hours.
