Carnegie Celebrates the Season
December 6, 12:00pm – 7:00pm

The Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall is partnering with Carnegie

Community Development Corporation and at least 19 local businesses to provide
a full day of festive, holiday programming. Carnegie Celebrates the Season takes
place Saturday December 6th from noon until 7:00 p.m.

The Borough has provided family-oriented holiday programming for decades. So
too has the Library & Music Hall. This year Mayor Jack Kobistek thought it would
be a great idea if everyone worked together. ACFL&MH Executive Director
Maggie Forbes was thrilled with the idea. “Anything the ACFL&MH can do to
make this a more inclusive event is fine with us. We hope this becomes an annual
collaboration that attracts people from far and wide.”
