For once, the sound of pulsating music wafting down Penn Avenue in East Liberty wasn't coming from the usual suspects. This time, the guilty party was taking place in between the shelves at the Carnegie Library on Friday, where another infamous After Hours: Late Night soiree had drawn more than 500 of the young and the restless out of their shells.

"Isn't this amazing? This is something new for us. I was really hesitant at first, but it's really worked out," said CLP prexy Mary Frances Cooper.

While a small crowd vied to claim dibs on vintage library furniture up for grabs (bidding for a card catalog got as high as $340), most of the mingling didn't migrate too far from the bars.

Circulating among the sellout crowd were Ned Schano, J.J. Richards, Amy Beatty, Brian Hart, Sam Badger, Ryan Bierkortte, Jack Brice and Kate Freed, and Jeremy and Rebecca Church.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
