On Friday, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh partnered with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra to present the 4th annual After Hours @ the Library. "This is the first time we have had to open the second floor for the event, since it was a sold-out success with more than 400 guests," said Mary Frances Cooper, president and director of the Library.
On the first floor, guests enjoyed two live bands, drinks, nibbles from local eateries, face painting and a photo booth. A live action game of Trivial Pursuit kept patrons engaged, while the second floor had a make-your-own-mask station along with a walk-on piano if you wanted to channel your inner Mozart, as well as other music-inspired activities. "There are so many younger people moving into the city, and this is a great way to showcase our Library as a useful resource that the city needs," said After Hours committee member, Hayley Haldeman. Also seen after hours were the Henderson Brothers' Mark Klingman, WYEP's Matthew Spangler, Jennifer Lucchino, and Katy Caliguiri.
