Support the Library

Reduced public funding has become the “new normal” for libraries everywhere. The Carmel Public Library has pioneered a variety of public-private partnerships. Working together with the city, businesses, foundations, and particularly, our generous donors, we secure the library’s ranking as one of the finest public libraries in California. CLICK here to donate!
