What will the Main Library's hours be?
Meanwhile, the Joyce Winner West Branch is still open.
Our branch at 12770 Horseferry Rd in the Village of WestClay is open its regular hours (Mon–Thu 10am–8pm, Fri 10am–5pm, Sat 12pm–5pm). Stop on by!
And our digital services are still available, too.
Our digital collections of ebooks, audiobooks, streaming movies, and more are never closed. Get started with these digital formats here.
You'll also still be able to access our online databases and other resources here.
Here's what's happening with items you've placed on hold.
Please wait until we send you a hold notification email or text before you stop by to pick up your holds. We have many holds waiting to be processed that we aren't able to prepare until right before the library reopens, so it will take a few days for us to have things ready. We appreciate your patience! If you have a question about your holds, give us a call at 317.814.3936.
Remember that you can also use your CCPL card to check things out from other Hamilton County libraries.
You can take your CCPL card, along with a photo ID, to a neighboring Hamilton County public library. After filling out an application form, they'll enter your card number into their system, and you'll be able to check items out. (Checkout policies vary, and electronic resources may not be available to non-resident cardholders.) The other libraries in Hamilton County are the Westfield Washington Public Library, the Hamilton East Public Library (Noblesville and Fishers branches), the Hamilton North Public Library (Atlanta and Cicero branches), and the Sheridan Public Library.
