CLP-Downtown and Business is located in the heart of the renaissance city of Pittsburgh. We bustle with activity, just like our neighborhood, with over 300,000 library visits last year. The neighborhood has changed drastically in the past 10 years and now proudly proclaims itself “the 18-hour downtown.” With cultural amenities, restaurants galore, sporting events, farmers’ markets, numerous festivals, shops and parks, the neighborhood has something for everyone. Our library business services include outreach and embedded librarianship, and we specialize in serving new and prospective small business owners. We serve a diverse cultural and socioeconomic patron base at our library, and are growing in the areas of children and teen services, and adult outreach.
The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has been a fixture in East Liberty since 1905. The Library moved to its current space in 1968 and underwent a major renovation in 2010. CLP-East Liberty is located within a vibrant business district in a dynamic neighborhood that is undergoing a residential and commercial transition. East Liberty is becoming one of the city’s most unique and distinct neighborhoods.
