We’re here for you! 

Pittsburgh, PA  –   – 

Libraries by nature are community spaces. It saddens us that we are not able to talk with you directly, hear about your day and celebrate the little victories together.

Unfortunately, like many businesses in our community, our facilities remain closed until further notice.

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for all of us. Our community is hurting right now, struggling to pay bills and keeping small businesses afloat — anxious for what the future holds.

While we can’t be there in person to help you through this difficult time, our librarians are working to adjust our services so you have virtual access to what you may need right now.

* Connect with other readers through our “Stay In & Read” challenge or join CLP’s first virtual Book Club.

* Get the hang of CLP’s eResources—books, movies, music and more—with these helpful tutorials.

* Introduce kids to virtual storytimessongs and rhymes and Teenspace activities on our social media.

* Share technology tips or resources for urgent needs with a neighbor or loved one.

* Keep your mind and hands busy—get crafty with (virtual) friends or explore your family tree.

* Remind a teen that Learn & Earn, the Ralph Munn Creative Writing Contest and the Labsy Award application periods are all open!

* Browse the online resources available to job hunters, small businesses and nonprofits.

* Be sure to fill out the 2020 census and consider applying for a mail-in ballot to cast your vote in the Primary Election.

* Mark your calendars and show your support on Thursday, April 23—National Library Giving Day!

Our team is small, but mighty! We are reading your comments on social media and responding to our library information line (412-622-3114), email (info@carnegielibrary.org) and virtual chat. We appreciate your kind words – they keep us going through this unprecedented journey.

Stay connected and safe. We will get through this together.
