The Carnegie Library Of Pittsburgh is the city's public library system. It was begun in 1895 by industrialist Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919) as a reflection of his belief that the rich should use their wealth to benefit society.

This branch of the Carnegie Library Of Pittsburgh, located on the south end of the city, first opened in 1930 at 1732 Brownsville Road in what had been a nikelodeon theatre. The library moved across the street to its current facility in February of 1993.

The Carrick branch serves the city of Pittsburgh with emphasis on the neighborhoods of Carrick, Overbrook and Bon Air, as well as suburban neighborhoods such as Brentwood and Baldwin. Funding for the new library facility was acquired through the efforts of surrounding community, city, county and state officials.
