Carmel library’s west branch reopens for in-person visits 


After being closed for more than a year, Carmel Clay Public Library’s Joyce Winner West Branch reopened April 5 for in-person visits.

Face coverings are required, and capacity is limited to 15 people at a time, including staff, to allow for physical distancing. Guests are encouraged to make visits as quick as possible.

CCPL’s only branch closed to the public in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic began to quickly spread in Indiana. It had celebrated its grand opening at 12770 Horseferry Rd. in the Village of WestClay two months before the closure. Patrons have been able to use the curbside service at the branch during most of the pandemic.

West branch hours are noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Curbside pickup will be available from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and noon to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
