CLP – Downtown supports the thousands of people who live, work, study, shop and visit Downtown Pittsburgh.

The newly expanded 21,400 square foot Library is approximately 68% larger and fully ADA compliant, allowing for flexibility for future needs and community interests. The reimagined first floor features an open, two-story foyer, a welcoming window seating area and ample space for collections, resources and technology. Accessible by elevator or the grand staircase, the second floor includes dynamic spaces for children, teens and adults, as well as meeting rooms for large groups and co-working and quiet workspaces for smaller gatherings. The newly renovated branch also includes space for community partners supporting job, educational and career-related activities, as well as health and social services.
