Love Your Library
Any and all Gifts in September will be Matched!
September is Love Your Library month. Any gift up to $500 to the ACFL between September 1 and September 30 will be matched by a $150,000 grant from the Jack Buncher Foundation. There’s a catch. All 46 libraries that are members of the Allegheny County Library Association are eligible to participate in this opportunity. The more people give throughout the county, the smaller the match….
That’s okay. Libraries are about two things: SHARING and EMPOWERMENT. We ask that you share your treasure with us this September. Your September donation in any amount – you mail a check, drop off a cash donation at the circulation desk or donate online here –will secure a pro-rated matching gift.
Last year, the Carnegie Carnegie’s Love Your Library donations ranked 4th in the County, thanks to your generosity!

Revered guitarist and beloved Pittsburgh icon Joe Negri returns to the Music Hall on October 7 to perform his Mass of Hope featuring the Bach Choir under the direction of Thomas Douglas. Performing with Negri are Max Leake on piano, Tony DePaolis on bass and Tom Wendt, percussion with guests Gavin Horning on guitar and Natalie Tomaro, soloist.
A Pittsburgh icon and guitar legend, Joe Negri has distinguished himself as a nationally acclaimed performer, recognized composer, renowned actor and respected educator for decades. He may be most familiar to national audiences for his 30-year tenure as the affable Handyman Negri on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (PBS).
Now in his 10th decade, Negri began developing his Mass in the mid-1960’s, incorporating typical jazz styles with harmonies and syncopations, bringing the classic liturgy to life. In a Post-Gazette interview, Negri commented, “If you like popular music or jazz, I think you will get a lot out of it…Parts of it can even get you off your feet a little bit and get you clapping your hands.”
Doors open at 7:00 pm || Concert begins at 7:30 pm
Tickets are available online or by calling 412-276-3456 x8
