The Andrew Carnegie Free Library has been serving Carnegie and surrounding communities since Andrew Carnegie founded and endowed the institution in 1901. Today, we are committed to providing warm, customer-focused library services – both traditional and digital – to all in our community.


September is Love Your Library month

Love Your Library

All gifts to the library during September will be matched up to $500 through the generosity of the Jack Buncher Foundation. Thanks to you, the library can be responsive and adaptive in a time of uncertainty and upheaval. We love our community, and we will continue finding new ways to meet Carnegie’s information needs in our building and remotely.

You may donate in person or on line using the DONATE  button to the right. When donating online, be sure to write “Love your Library” in the notation.

Donation Rewards:

  • Any amount: “Love Your Library” pin
  • $5+: Sarris chocolate bar
  • $20+: “The Pint-Sized Songstress Returns,” a CD recorded in our own Music Hall by acclaimed jazz & blues vocalist Jessica Lee
