Economic Impact Study
Regional Benefits of Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh

With more than 2 million visitors annually, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is the area's most visited regional asset. Yet, despite its 110-year history, the library has never quantified its contributions to the region. In 2005, the library partnered with Carnegie Mellon University's Center for Economic Development to explore the many ways that Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh impacts the economic vitality of the region. The report examines both the library's value to the economy in terms of return on investment as well as its contributions to people and their communities.
