ACLA Presents: Library Road Trip

Did you know that there are 45 public libraries outside the City of Pittsburgh in Allegheny County? Some are big, some small. Some you can walk to, others require a car or bus. But all of them provide much more than books—they offer programming for patrons of all ages, and are welcoming places in their communities.

The Allegheny County Library Association is proud to announce the launch of Library Road Trip, a new program which challenges everyone to visit as many libraries in our county as possible!
