6:45 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Join us at the Allegheny Branch of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh as we explore interesting topics from the rich history of Allegheny City and from Pittsburgh’s North Side. There are so many stories to tell of the great place many of us call home. The North Side and the former Allegheny City was home to great thinkers, writers, artists, and political and social heroes and advocates. (Not to mention some wonderfully diverse architecture.) This ongoing program is sure to trigger great memories and great conversations.

Parking is available in the Medical Building Garage on Federal Street, as well as metered parking along Federal Street and North Avenue.
