Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh

Children's Museum of Pittsburgh collaborated with the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh to re-imagine the children and teen spaces at eight of their neighborhood branches throughout the City of Pittsburgh. The goal of the project was to help the Library better serve their expanded after-school activities and early childhood programming, as well as activate their open-access play spaces. Some of the additions included made-to-order computer stations; work tables and custom display fixtures designed for maker activities and study spaces; mobile benches; updated versions of the Museum’s Light Peg Walls and Train Tables; new multi-surface play centers; and our unique reading pods - aka Cocoon Chairs.

The neighborhood branches that were a part of this renovation are Brookline, East Liberty, Homewood, Lawrenceville, Main Branch, Sheraden, Squirrel Hill and Woods Run.
