Ribbon Cutting for New Library

Although it's been open for 2 weeks, there will be a grand opening party today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the Carnegie Library's Allegheny Branch on Federal Street on the North Side. After the ribbon cutting, Ian Lawler, one of the library's young cardholders will place the final book, "Allegheny Story," by William Rimmel on its proper shelf.
The $6 million dollar facility has a children's section that takes up nearly half of the building. spokeswoman Suzanne Thinnes says they've been working the last 3 years with North Side Community members to plan and design a new library building after a lightning strike severely damaged the old library.
