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 Homewood branch opened on March 10, 1911. It is the last library building built by Andrew Carnegie.
This 93-year old library, now completely restored to its original grandeur, includes updated meeting rooms, a new elevator, new accessible restrooms, as well as a fully equipped 300-person auditorium for public use.
The branch serves the communities of Homewood-Brushton, Point Breeze, Penn Hills, East Hills and parts of East Liberty.
