Times and locations for the three “town hall” meetings addressing the
Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s looming budget crisis have been set.
The Library announced last week that it is facing a $3 million short
fall in 2010, $4.5 Million in 2011 and a $6 million deficit by 2014 if
no changes are made to the current system. Library officials are
hoping citizens will give their input on what services are most
important to them, suggestions for cuts, and ideas for revenue
enhancements. The 90-minute “town hall” meetings will include a brief
presentation from library staff, followed by public input. The times
are as follows:

Thursday, July 16 at 7:00 p.m. Carnegie Public Library Main branch
Lecture Hall, 4400 Forbes Avenue.

Saturday, July 18, at 10 a.m. Carrick High School; Auditorium, 125
Parkfield Street

Tuesday, July 21 at 7:00 p.m. CCAC-Allegheny Campus; SSC Auditorium,
808 Ridge Avenue
