Pittsburgh is known as the “City of Bridges” and we who provide Library Outreach to our communities are experts at “Bridging the Gap” in library services.  The area is also the adopted hometown of Andrew Carnegie and is home to six of the earliest Carnegie Libraries.  We hope you will join us this year to network, to learn, to share, and to grow as we continually strive to improve and innovate Library Outreach.
