Emergency Closing Policy

It is the policy of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh to recognize that on occasion, inclement weather or other conditions may prevent the library from opening or may cause it to close early. The Library will close for weather related emergency conditions whenever the City of Pittsburgh closes during the weekdays.

Because of terrain, there are occasions when one or more of the branches libraries must close because of an emergency situation or the direct impact of weather conditions on neighborhood(s) where the branch is located.

Closing the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh during regular business hours is highly unlikely, but in the event of severe weather conditions call the Library's mini-message board at 412.622.3116 and/or listen to radio station KDKA for announcements regarding closing. Media notification is made each day the facilities are to be closed.
