Harrison Memorial Library


The Harrison Memorial Library, located on the corner of Ocean Avenue and Lincoln street in the heart of downtown, has been serving the community of Carmel-by-the-Sea since 1928. In 1989 the Park Branch of the Library, located on the corner of Mission Street and Sixth Avenue, opened to the public with dedicated space to kids books and materials and a repository for local history artifacts and research. 

The library provides access to books, DVDs, audiobooks, as well as materials available online for streaming, downloading and research. In addition the library provides the community with programs, storytimes, and a space to gather. Connect with us in person or online
