Hey, Teens. Speak Up about Libraries

Even if you haven’t made it to any of the workshops on library funding, we still need you at one of the final ones we’re holding.  We need to hear what’s important to you and your reactions to what will happen if we don’t have enough funding. The number of hours/days we’re open, how many books, computers or programs we’ll have are at stake.

 And everyone needs to know that teens care and that their voice MATTERS.

Upcoming meetings are listed here:

Saturday, September 18 | 10 am – Noon
St. Catherine of Siena Church • 1915 Broadway Avenue, 15216 • Across from CLP – Beechview

Saturday, September 18 | 2 – 4 pm
Providence Family Support Center • 3113 Brighton Road, 15212 • At the intersection of Brighton Rd. and Schimmer St. near CLP-Woods Run.

Sunday, September 19 | 2 – 4 pm
CLP – Squirrel Hill • 5801 Forbes Avenue, 15217

Monday, September 20 | 6 – 8 pm
CLP – Downtown & Business • 612 Smithfield Street, 15222

Teens have held Advocacy Days at Main and other libraries but please call, write letters and send emails to State and local officials.  They have told us they especially like hearing from students. And that you’ve made the effort has a big impact. You can find out who to contact here:
