Animal Visits at the Library

An animal in the library?? It sounds like the case for an exterminator. But think again – this summer at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, our locations will be hosts to many different animal friends from swimmers to slitherers, brought there by stellar community organizations. Don’t miss your chance to meet one of them! It will be fun for all ages. You can find more fun and educational events on our website, or in our handy program guide.
