Three Carnegie Libraries Bus TourSaturday November 2, 2019
12:00 PM until 5:00 PM
presented by Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation
This year marks the 100th anniversary of Andrew Carnegie’s death, the 125th anniversary of Carnegie Borough, and the 130th anniversary of the Braddock Carnegie Library. This is a perfect year to celebrate Andrew Carnegie’s legacy.
Board our tour bus at Station Square and visit the Braddock Carnegie Library (1889), the Carnegie Library of Homestead (1898), and the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall (1901). All three are impressive architectural landmarks, catalysts for renewal in their communities, and connected to significant chapters in our nation’s history: the French & Indian War; Homestead Steel Strike of 1892; and Civil War. The directors of each library will welcome our group and share stories about their challenges and triumphs in restoring and programming these historic landmarks to thrive in the 21st century.
Fee: members $45; non-members $65
