The South Side Branch of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is a community educational and recreational center for the South Side Flats neighborhood. A celebrated historic landmark, it was built in 1909 with design by the noted architectural firm Alden & Harlow.
The facility reopened in September, 2012 after closing for a year during a top-to-bottom $2.7-million renovation featuring green technology that includes geothermal heating and cooling. A new elevator makes all three levels of the library fully accessible. There is a meeting room for up to 100 in the basement and a second-floor seminar room.
