As Pittsburgher now living in BIrmingham UK I was delighted to see one of my favorite buildings come up on the front page. I always take first time visitors to Pgh. there.
And my mom was one of the school kids who donated her pennies in the 20s to build it. Well, at least that's what she said.

Yes! We walk through with jaws low and eyes wide open. It's like seeing it again for the first time.
I also taught seminars in some of those lovely little rooms.

Cute. Not really a pun. But it is not A Carnegie Library, it is THE Carnegie Library. Cf., Flashdance the movie for great shots.

smiley - ok And it is, of course, pronounced 'Car-NEG-ie', as it should be.

smiley - cool that you taught classes there - I attended quite a few there, myself, and studied in the Commons Room many a time. And fell and hit my head on a stone column once, which is why I am so smiley - weird.

But I only got to be a TA in boring Lawrence Hall, and the Loeffler Building (which was a prefab with no windows over Binstock's Jewelry Store on Forbes Ave, near the bowling alley).
