Carthage Public Library announces construction issues may cause closures and/or difficult accessibility to the Library.
Beginning August 11, the Carthage Public Library will begin the huge undertaking of replacing the entire HVAC system (cooling and heat). For the two to three months that follow, due to unforeseen circumstances, the Library may have to close for short periods due to no electricity or heat/air conditioning. Patrons will not be able to access the Library via the sidewalk that runs north and south in front of the library entrance. Parking will be at a premium as contractors and construction workers will be using 7th street for vehicles and materials. Use the Library parking lot and South Maple for your parking. If you have accessibility issues, please contact the library at 417-237-7040 for curbside assistance. We will be glad to accommodate your needs.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we remind you to always check our website or FB page for updates.
