Opened in 1918, the Swissvale Library began with a donation from philanthropist and industrialist Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919) and has been a valuable part of this charming suburb east of Pittsburgh ever since.
The handsome red brick buiding located at the corner of Monongahela Avenue and McClure Street is home to an impressive collection of books, videos and audio recordings. Equipped with wi-fi service, the library has rooms serving adults, teens and children and provides access to eight public computers.
Members of the community come to Swissvale Library book and movie clubs, a knitting group and assorted children programs.
Also inside the library is the Swissvale Senior Center, where mature members of the community can take advantage of many key programs and services.
