Are you concerned about the library branches closing? Please attend a letter writing party, wherein folks will gather and write letters to each board member of Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, urging them not to close the branches, and to allow organizations and interested parties a chance to offer CLP money and a funding solution. So far, City Council has found half the money, and people’s recent donations have covered another quarter. But the library board still wants to close the branches barring a permanent solution.
There will be a letter-writing party at Armand’s at 4755 Liberty Avenue in Bloomfield from 7 to 9pm on Tuesday, November 24th, in the back room where there are lots of booths with tables.
