Heartfelt Thanks to our Many Generous Supporters
The campaign to restore, renovate and revitalize the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall has captured the hopes, dreams and support of Carnegie, surrounding Chartiers Valley communities and beyond. Launched by the Chartiers Valley Partnership in November 2003, the campaign has raised more than $7.5 million. Funding has come from federal, state, county, local government and foundations. Remarkably, individuals and businesses from Carnegie and nearby communities have contributed nearly a quarter of that funding.

The ACFL&MH’s historic landmark facility is structurally sound, weatherproof and accessible. There are new comfortable seat ins the Music Hall, its lobby is gracious, welcoming and equipped with a box office; its dressing rooms are wonderful. The Espy Post was meticulously restored in 2010. The Library is air conditioned and the old gym is now the, the old gym was transformed into airy, versatile programming space: The Studio. Just as importantly, improvements to Library & Music Hall services and programming have kept pace with upgrades to the building.

The CVP took stock, and decided its job is done. It formally dissolved at the end of 2011, turning over the responsibility for completing the ACFL&MH’s restoration to the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall’s Board of Trustees.

Critical work remains to be done: air conditioning the full facility; interior restoration of the Library and Music Hall; code and life safety upgrades; improved parking, landscaping and exterior lighting.

The Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall looks forward to completing this extraordinary undertaking. It is forever grateful to the Chartiers Valley Partnership and for the ongoing outpouring of community support that is the cornerstone of the capital campaign’s success and the ACFL&MH’s bright future.
