Survival: After Hours
The Leadership has requested your presence at Main Headquarters for a night of celebration in support of the Library you love!
Volunteer as tribute and channel your inner Katniss Everdeen at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s Survival: After Hours and help to raise funds for the Library! This month only, your support will go even further – The proceeds from After Hours ticket sales will be partially matched by the Jack Buncher Foundation as a part of the Love Your Library campaign
It’s Big Brother’s night off, so cut loose and enjoy some light bites and specialty cocktails as you prepare for the apocalypse by participating in fun, themed activities.
