Woods Run Branch, Carnegie Library, Pittsburgh, PA

This engaging public library sits in the quaint Woods Run neighborhood on Pittsburgh’s Northside. The rest of the area is largely vernacular, early 20th-century housing and utilitarian commercial structures so the Woods Run branch stands out quite prominently. It was built in 1963 by Michael R. Cozza and Associates. Its look today is a bit different as it was renovated in 2006, opening it up to allow more light through the clerestory windows and to fit the building with green technology.
