Carnegie Library Of Pittsburgh (Hazelwood)

PHONE: (412) 421-2517

This branch of the Carnegie Library serves the historic part of the city called Hazelwood, located southeast of Downtown Pittsburgh along the Monongahela River.

Established in 1890 through a gift by industrialist Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919), the Carnegie is Pittsburgh’s public library system with 19 branches scattered throughout the city. Hazelwood takes its name from the hazelnut trees which once flourished along the river before it became an industrial center and working class housing. It is the location of what may be Pittsburgh’s oldest house, built in 1792 for local businessman and political leader John Woods (1761-1816).

The current Hazelwood branch is an attractive, modern building that replaced its long-time home constructed in 1889. The library has extensive services and a good collection of material behind its ample windows.

Monday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Tuesday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

On-street parking is available.
