Lots of families turned out to join us in making ornaments, singing carols and after we lit the tree we had cookies and milk! What a fun evening at the Library!

An Evening with Marie Benedict, author of Carnegie’s Maid

Thank you to all who attended our talk by bestselling author of Carnegie’s Maid, Marie Benedict! It was a lovely evening celebrating Andrew Carnegie’s 134th birthday in Carnegie Hall of the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall. Benedict shared interesting stories and tidbits from the life of Andrew Carnegie, but ultimately focused her talk of the lives of immigrant workers, particularly women, who worked in and around Pittsburgh. While the existence of a maid who turned Andrew Carnegie’s life around is uncertain, Benedict spoke to the truth of immigrant life particularly in Pittsburgh in the late 19th Century. The evening finished up with a lovely reception and book signing in the Lincoln Gallery!

We had a RADical time with the South Hills Chorale during our free RADical Days open house and concert. It was wonderful to meet so many new neighbors. If you haven’t yet discovered the magic of the historic Carnegie Carnegie call or visit us today!
