Begun in three small rooms in a shopping mall in 1957, the Upper St. Clair Library serves one of Pittsburgh's better known suburbs.
Upper St. Clair is a town of 19,000 people located ten miles south of Pittsburgh. Its history dates to the 1760s with the arrival of the first European settlers. The town is named in honor of General Arthur St. Clair (1737-1818), a hero of the US Revolutionary War.
The library is located at the rear of the Upper St. Clair Municipal Building, a sprawling, impressive redbrick structure that echoes early American architecture. Covering three stories, the library offers a full range of services, including a respectable collection of books, internet access and meeting rooms.
In addition to the library and municipal government offices, the complex also houses other town services such as the school district offices, the public access television station and police department.
