In support of its mission to inspire lifelong discovery, facilitate collaboration, and connect people with resources, the library makes internet access available to its patrons, along with collections of print, non-print, and electronic resources. Internet use in the library means using the library's network to access the internet either on library workstations, on equipment loaned by the library, or through a wireless connection.
The library's Safe Child Guidelines are designed to help parents and caregivers understand the expectations for monitoring their children's behavior during library visits.
The library’s materials collection is developed and managed to meet the cultural, informational, educational, and recreational needs of the library’s service area. The library builds and maintains a patron-oriented collection by anticipating and responding to the needs and expectations of all facets of the community.
The library supports its mission of inspiring lifelong discovery, facilitating collaboration, and connecting people with resources by developing and presenting programs that provide additional opportunities for learning and entertainment. Programs are provided as a means through which the public of all ages, cultures, backgrounds, and interest groups can share experiences, appreciate special interests, and exchange information.
Non-commercial photography and videography are generally allowed without prior written permission provided such activity does not interfere with other patrons’ use of the library. Photos and video may not capture identifiable likenesses of individuals without their permission. Individuals who take pictures must honor requests from patrons who do not want to be included in photos. Simple tripods may be used if they do not obstruct passageways or cause disturbances to patrons. Separate light and sound equipment may not be used. The library reserves the right to terminate any photography or videography if it results in disruption of library operations or violates the library’s Standards of Conduct.
Requests for commercial photography or videography may be submitted using the Email form on the library's Contact Us webpage.
News-related photography and videography are permitted provided the activity does not disrupt library operations. Notification is not required but is appreciated for news-related activities on library property.
The Carmel Clay Public Library provides space at its Main Library for announcements/notices from local nonprofit organizations as a service to the public.
Items for posting may be submitted at any public service desk and must receive approval by the library's Communications Department before posting. Materials left for consideration cannot be held or returned. Due to time constraints, staff are unable to follow up regarding posting status. Materials approved for posting will be displayed as space allows.
Due to space limitations, community information is not posted or distributed at the library's West Branch.
Posting of materials by the library does not indicate endorsement of issues, events, or services promoted by those materials. The library is not responsible for the accuracy of the information displayed.
Local nonprofit organizations may request that the Carmel Clay Public Library’s Main Library serve as a collection point for donated goods, such as articles of clothing and food items.
Requests may be submitted using the Email form on the library's Contact Us webpage.
Serving as a collection point does not indicate the library’s endorsement of the sponsoring organization. The library is not responsible for items donated.
