Marion Carnegie Tie-brary

At the MCL Tie-brary, you can borrow a necktie at no cost! Simply ask a Staff Member at the MCL Main Desk, and choose a tie that fits your style. Then return it to the library when you’re done. No library card is necessary.

This program is made possible by community donations. If you’d like to make a donation, email

How to Tie a Tie

The program has been made possible by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a Department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA).
