Carnegie Library Of Homestead

PHONE: (412) 462-3444

The Carnegie Library Of Homestead was founded by industrialist Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919) in 1896 and is the oldest Carnegie library in continuous operation in its original building. The magnificent French Renaissance structure was constructed with Pompeian brick.

It is an independent entity straddling the suburbs of Homestead and Munhall and not affiliated with the Carnegie Library Of Pittsburgh.

More than a library, it is a genuine community center with an athletic club (including a heated indoor pool) and music hall. It was built, in part, as a response to the bloody and violent 1892 labor strike at the Homestead Steel Works which Carnegie owned. The library was constructed on a hill that overlooked the mill, most of which has been demolished and replaced with a shopping center and a water park.

Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

There is free on-street parking around the library.
