We are grateful to have the support of community members who help transform Library services and shape the region’s future through generous donations.

We express this gratitude and recognize your contribution through the special giving circles outlined below. This is our way to honor our most generous supporters who show their commitment to the Library.

Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Circle

Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Circle was formed to honor and recognize individuals who are committed to sustaining the Library’s long-term future. The Library Circle recognizes supporters who include the Library in their will or estate plan, establish a named endowment or contribute $1,000 or more to the Library’s endowment. Library Circle members are recognized each year at an annual reception, included in a membership list, enjoy access to special programming and receive a special bookmark. For members who create a named endowment, the Library offers a variety of additional recognition opportunities including permanent recognition.

Join the Library Circle and the many others who, like you, understand the lasting value of the Library and the importance of sustaining its future.
