BUILDING RE-OPENING & IN-PERSON LEARNING: We are excited to open the building to the public with our regular business hours starting September 1. Please remember we are still taking necessary precautions to manage the COVID-19 virus. We reserve the right to update or change programs in accordance with official health and safety guidelines.
Carnegie Center staff is returning to working in the building full-time; in some cases, voicemails may not be checked regularly. For most communication needs, please email.

MASKS & FACIAL COVERINGS: Children under 12 years old and adults working with children should wear masks at all times while inside of the Carnegie Center.

ONLINE CLASSES & EVENTS: Some classes and events remain online or are available with hybrid options. These instances require a smart device, reliable Internet, and a free Zoom account.

PRE-RECORDED WEBINARS: Offered for your convenience, these webinars are recordings of past classes and are delivered to you via email.

REGISTRATION: For online classes, registration closes at 4:00 pm the day before a class begins. We are unfortunately unable to accommodate joining a class after the start date. For more information about registering for classes, click here.

We hope to see you soon at the Carnegie Center, home to the Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame and writers and readers of all levels.
