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.

Built in 1899, the Lawrenceville library was the system's first neighborhood branch built. It is historic in many other ways, including the first library in the country with open stacks and the first with a children's room.
