DO YOU HAVE OLD PICTURES OF, OR PAPERS FROM,
THE ANDREW CARNEGIE FREE LIBRARY ?
Do you have old photographs, library notices, music hall programs, or any other papers or documents relating to the Andrew Carnegie Free Library and Music Hall? For many years, all Carnegie High School events took place in the Library Music Hall. Also, for many years Carnegie Borough Council met in the Library's second floor Lecture Hall. Do you have any photographs of, or programs from, any of these events?
The centennial of the opening of the Library and Music Hall will be in May of 2001. The Andrew Carnegie Free Library is now beginning a public search for pictures and papers, relating to the history of the Library, Music Hall, Lecture Hall, Espy GAR Post Civil War Museum, and Gymnasium, which members of the community may have in their photo albums, attic, or other storage areas. The Library wishes to borrow any such pictures or papers to have them copied onto the Library's Internet web site, for the whole world to see. ALL PICTURES AND PAPERS BORROWED BY THE LIBRARY WILL BE RETURNED TO THE OWNER!
The Library would also welcome any written reminisces by patrons of our Library and Music Hall. If you have pictures, papers, or reminisces of the Andrew Carnegie Free Library you would like to share, contact Glenn A. Walsh, Library Life Trustee, at the Library or by telephone: (412) 561-7876.
