U. S. Steel President & CEO and Honorary Campaign Co-Chair David B. Burritt during the event announced that U. S. Steel is committing an additional $500,000 to the renovation on top of an existing $500,000 commitment, bringing U. S. Steel’s total campaign contribution to $1 million. The goal for the Carnegie One Capital Campaign is $18 million to fund extensive renovations and additions, including a performance hall, retail space, gymnasium, print shop, ceramics studio, and areas designed for kids and teens.
In addition to Burritt, the ceremony featured speakers including Governor Tom Wolf, Pittsburgh Penguins President of Business Operations Kevin Acklin, Braddock Carnegie Library Association Executive Director Vicki Vargo, and Eden Hall Foundation Executive Director Sylvia Fields.
“The Braddock Carnegie Library is the first of thousands of libraries U. S. Steel founder Andrew Carnegie financed in the US,” Burritt said. “This library, like U. S. Steel itself, is part of the fabric of this region, and it will take teamwork to breathe new life into the building. That’s why we doubled our contribution of $500,000 to a total of $1 million. It’s an investment in our community to make this more than a library – a shining example of what can happen when partners join hands to lift communities up and create a space that is Best for All.”
The state of Pennsylvania has also invested $1 million to the project through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) and $750,000 through a Keystone Grant for Public Library Facilities through the Department of Education.
“I’m proud to support the legacy of the Braddock Carnegie Library with a contribution of $1.75 million to the next chapter of growth for this building and this community,” said Governor Tom 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, creativity and curiosity.”
