We Want Your Two Cents


The Braddock Carnegie Library was founded over 125 years ago. Today, it requires YOUR help to make it through the next 125 years. Our beloved building is in need of repairs and updates,  funding sources are shrinking while the demand for our services in providing diverse information, educational and cultural resources is increasing. We have a core group of dedicated people who bring their time, talents and love for people and community to the library every single day.

But we need more...

We are seeking library lovers everywhere to make change by giving change. 


From one penny to a billion - each of us can uplift a library and the neighborhood.


What is the Billion Pennies Project?


1 billion pennies = $10 million.  10 million dollars will ensure the operational sustainability of the BCLA for generations and generations: preserving our past while fostering the light and learning of  our future!
