President & Director Andrew Medlar’s Summer Picks

Summer Reading holds a special place in my heart, because from the year I was born I was always the first kid signed up for it at my neighborhood library. As an adult, that same holds true. Here are five books I loved the most this summer.






Black Joy

Check out these books that highlight the joy, comfort, love, creativity and other positive experiences that are integral parts of the full humanity of Black lives.   




Independence Day Nonfiction for Adults

Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has a wide selection of print and digital titles to commemorate the Declaration of Independence of the United States on July 4, 1776. Make sure to include some reading time in your 4th of July celebration plans.
