About

A symbol of resilience in the struggling borough of Braddock, Pennsylvania, The Carnegie Library relies on innovative cultural programs to engage our young residents and change the outlook for our town’s future. Youth Publications: Braddock, organized in conjunction with Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Museum and hosted at the historic library, will employ a group of students, ages 15-18, and give them the opportunity to create publications and print material chronicling life in their struggling community. Participants will practice a mix of traditional print and digital skills such as, photographic silkscreen and letterpress printing, desktop publishing and web design. Projects like this allow the library, a beacon of culture and community for the people of Braddock, to remain standing.

All funds raised will be used to support the staff of the Youth Publications project and replenish the supplies needed to run the program.
