We’re closely following the guidelines and recommendations of the

• We use air purifiers/scrubbers in our classrooms as well as fans to promote air circulation.
• On days when weather permits, we open our windows to allow the circulation of fresh air.
• We’ve installed touch-free hand sanitizer stations throughout our building.
• Employees who are not well are not working in the building.


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.
