The work that the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh does in the communities of Pittsburgh, particularly in the areas of promoting early learning and bringing literacy outreach services to young children, is unrivaled. Services that are not available for free anywhere else (like free computer and internet access, job-seeking assistance, and free CD and DVD rentals) help to relieve the pressure from economically strained customers. My favorite neighborhood library, Woods Run, offers free programs every week for every age group-- storytimes for small children and their parents, afterschool science and crafts for elementary schoolers, fun activities like video games for teens, and classes for adults like computer literacy and Spanish. The staff members are friendly and knowledgable and create a vibrant community space that shines in the neighborhood.
