Meeting Set for the South Side Carnegie Library

People will have the opportunity to voice their opinion over the renovation of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh's South Side Branch this Wednesday. During the meeting, project architects from Loysen and Kreuthmeier will present several possible designs based on past community input.

Suzanne Thinnes, spokesperson for the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, says the meeting is for the South Side community to share what they think about the plans. "We value input from everyone in the community. Even if you haven't been to the library in a while and you would like to see what's coming up in the future. This is a great opportunity to come in, get your library card, and see what the library has to offer."

The renovation is part of the Carnegie Library's "Libraries for Life" capital campaign, where there are plans to renovate 11 libraries. The South Side library renovation is expected to cost 2.7 million dollars, take 12 months to complete and start mid-summer.
