The site of Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – Beechview was originally home to the Beth El Synagogue, which opened in 1927. The Synagogue moved, and the property at 1910 Broadway Avenue was sold to the City of Pittsburgh, in 1965. CLP – Beechview opened its doors in this space on June 24, 1967 as the 17th branch in the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh system.
Recently, the Library underwent an extensive renovation so that it could be better positioned to serve its evolving neighborhood. The newly updated and enlarged Library was unveiled to the public on Saturday, July 18, 2015. The location now provides a meeting room for Library and community use, a dedicated space for teens and a lower level devoted to the needs of children.
As a LABS location, Beechview offers innovative programming focused on creative technology and hands-on connective learning for children and teens.
The Library is also home to an expansive Spanish language collection which includes fiction, non-fiction and graphic novels for teens.
The original date stone from 1967 is proudly on display in the building’s patio area. In 2017 CLP – Beechview celebrated its 50th Anniversary.
Our newly renovated space offers bright, open and accessible spaces. Come visit us soon!
Beechview is a neighborhood with long-established families and businesses, and the Library has been an integral part of the community since 1967. After an extensive renovation in 2014-2015, this neighborhood Library continues to serve the community with a revitalized and modern space.
