Summer Reading starts June 14!


Log your reading from June 14-August 7 with the free Beanstack app! If you’re new to Beanstack, sign up here.  Search for “Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh” as your library, and choose “Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall” as your location. Be sure to select the Challenge called “Summer Reading 2021.” If you need help, give us a call at 412-276-3456!

Plus, sign up to read to a dog at the Library! Virginia “Ginny” Woof will visit us each Wednesday from 1:00-2:00 PM. Sign up for a reading slot at the Library, or call 412-276-3456.


Earn up to ten brag tags for participating in Summer Reading! You’ll get one when you sign up; one for each of the eight weeks that you log reading in Beanstack and/or attend a Library program/storytime; and one when you complete the program!
