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.
The South Side branch is one of the original buildings constructed with funds provided by Andrew Carnegie. The doors opened in 1909 to serve an ethnically diverse working class poplulation. Today, the South Side neighborhood has maintained its historic flavor and sense of community while benefitting from revitalization efforts. The building has been designated as an historic landmark.
