The Guild

    The Carmel Clay Public Library Foundation Guild was formed in 2004 by Donna Adams, Marianne Brocke, Mimi Brookie, Julianne Hunter, Karee Petruzzi, Jan Stanich, Karen Vanneman, and retired Foundation Director Ruth Nisenshal to assist with developing and hosting a signature fundraising event for the benefit of the library. 

    The Guild hosted its first fundraising event in 2005. The "Crème de la Crème" art exhibit included a silent auction for the benefit of the library. That same year, the Guild hosted its first annual signature event, the Guilded Leaf Book and Author Luncheon. The Guilded Leaf has gone on to become an annual event, bringing bestselling authors to Carmel and raising financial support for the library's programs.

    The Guild is always delighted to welcome new members. To learn more about the Guild, contact Foundation Director Elizabeth Hamilton at 317-814-3905 or
