Pittsburgh Libraries

Recommended Posts

Pittsburgh's Carnegie Library System is the 19th largest in the nation (9th largest non-academic library).

But I have long wondered 7 of the top 8 public libraries ahead of Pittsburgh are Metro libraries that include the whole county the city is in or part of a metro government.

I have long wondered what the volume number would be if Pittsburgh combined all of the metro libraries (especially the ones just in Allegheny County).
