Having moved around a fair bit, I've been to a few libraries, and the Carnegie Library system surpasses them all. The locations are convenient, the staff is always helpful, the schedule is packed with great activities, and the shelves, of course, are filled to the brim. I love that I can request books from any branch in the system as easily as putting a hold on something at my own library. And I love that the library is a community center in an age where it is nearly impossible to find wholesome, free places to spend time. Also, the window to the dinosaurs in the Main branch makes it the best place to sit and study in all of Pittsburgh.

The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is one of my favorite places to go in the city. It's quiet, serene, and provides the perfect environment for reading and studying. I could spend all day in there and just be as happy as can be!

This library has been delighting me since I first went there as a child many years ago. I have since returned many times, and brought my Granddaughter along as well. Thank you for the many hours with "friends" from all over the world ... :) Many blessings!

CLP has been a huge supporter of our local Nerdfighter goup, Pittsburgh Area Nerdfighters (Bringing Nerdy Back). We meet in the teen section of the Oakland Library every month and they have gone out of their way to make us feel welcome. They have asked our opinions on programming and has kept in touch with us when a meeting may conflict with a program they have. We adore CLP and the Teen Librarians!
