September is LOVE YOUR LIBRARY month.  Of course, we hope that you love the Andrew Carnegie Free Library 12 months of the year, year in and year out. We do!

Four years ago, the Jack Buncher Foundation launched the LOVE YOUR LIBRARY initiative, providing a very generous annual grant to encourage library patrons throughout Allegheny County to support their libraries. Your generosity has earned us more than $21,000 in matching funds over the last three years. Thank you Jack Buncher Foundation, thank YOU!

This year, we’ve come up with special ways to thank you for your September support. The ACFL&MH has a beautiful and beloved facility. We also have a terrific logo, that proclaims pride not only in the Library & Music Hall, but in the community we serve. We are incorporating are our facility and our logo into our thank you gifts.

For a donation of $25, we say thank you with a “Carnegie Carnegie” tee-shirt. These have not been available for many years.  We are bringing them back for September in men’s, women’s and youth styles and sizes.

For a donation of $10, we say thank you with a packet of five, all-occasion notecards, adorned with a water color rendering of our lovely, historic landmark facility.

For donations of $5, we say thank you with a specialty chocolate bar.  These delicious and deluxe milk or dark chocolate bars come in a “Carnegie Carnegie” wrapper, candy and wrapper custom-made for us by our neighbors at My Favorite Sweet Shoppe. Chocolate keeps – stock up!

For donations under $5, we say thank you with a “Carnegie Carnegie” button.

Incentives notwithstanding, we deeply appreciate your support, we truly value your patronage, and it is always an honor to be the Library that You Love!
