Realize: Our Power, Our Potential

As our community grows and changes, so too must the Library. Today, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh locations proudly remain places of learning and equal opportunity.

In response to our community's needs we have set a course to transform library services and help shape the region's future in three key areas: education, workforce and economic development and neighborhood vitality.

In January of 2015, we launched Realize: Our Power, Our Potential, a multi-phased major gifts initiative designed to strengthen the Library and ensure its long-term financial health for current and future generations. With your help, the Library has raised more than $23 million towards our $20 million goal for Realize. 

Special projects include:

Renovation and Expansion of CLP – Mt. Washington
This summer, we will begin a $4.1 million renovation and expansion project at historic CLP – Mt. Washington, located at 315 Grandview Avenue overlooking Downtown Pittsburgh. The plans include 2,700 square feet of additional space to meet the need of the community. To learn more about naming opportunities, contact Pat Quinn Winter at 412.622.6276 or winterp@carnegielibrary.org. You may also make a gift online.
