Carmel Clay Public Library and CCS eBook Partnership

All Carmel Clay Schools students are eligible for a Carmel Clay Public Library card, even if they do not live in Clay township. With a CCPL card, students can access free downloadable eBooks and audiobooks, as well as the databases and other resources that the CCPL offers.


Applying for a CCPL card is easy - simply stop by the circulation desk on the first floor of the CCPL to fill out an application, print an application from the CMS Media Center website here, or stop by the Media Center to pick up a CCPL card application. If the application is filled out at home or at school, Ms. Worthman will send it to the public library for processing. If you do not apply in person, please allow a couple weeks for the application to process.


This is a great way to get prepared for summer reading!
