Gov. Wolf Highlights $1.75 Million Investment in Community at Braddock Carnegie Library Groundbreaking

Braddock, PA- Governor Tom Wolf joined the ceremonial groundbreaking for renovations at the Braddock Carnegie Library and highlighted his $1.75 million investment to support the project that will serve as a safe, welcoming, educational space for the local community.

“I’m proud to support the legacy of the Braddock Carnegie Library and contribute to the next chapter of growth for this building and this community,” said Gov. Wolf. “Once renovated, this library will not only serve as a portal to knowledge and culture but also a safe place for residents to gather for fellowship and exercise their creativity and curiosity.”

Governor Wolf supported the renovation through a $1 million Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grant and a $750,000 Keystone Grant for Public Library Facilities through the Department of Education. The $1.75 million investment will support the Braddock Carnegie Library renovations that include creating universal accessibility to all three floors of the building, upgrading windows and insulation and installing a new HVAC system for year-round climate control, making rooms that were once unusable due to extreme temperatures habitable for hosting events during peak rental seasons, and modernizing the library’s historic Music Hall to host performances, events, and gatherings for up to 500 people.
