Carnegie Library , named after its benefactor, is in Oakland. It is the main library of the city, next to the Carnegie Museum. There are many buildings in Oakland worth viewing for their architecture and their history.
The huge library I've ever seen. Lot of books but also of cds, really carefully cataloguated, lot of dvds too. And on the last floor many books about the story of Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania. Maybe you need to go many times to explore everything!
