The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh rolled out the welcome mat in front of its newly renovated South Side branch on Thursday, where politicos, friends and supporters were filtering in for a special preview party to officially christen the building's grand reopening.

“It's unbelievable,” said honorary event chair Roberto Croce with his wife, Beth.

Unbelievable, indeed. Old world rendezvoused with new in an overhaul that included refurbishing all of the original windows and adding some highly coveted air conditioning for the first time in the building's 113-year history.

“When the heat index rose above 90 degrees, they'd have to shut (the library) down,” said CLP's Suzanne Thinnes.

Prexy Mary Frances Cooper, Eva Tansky Blum, Marcie Eberhart, Sue andScott Lammie, Dr. Paul and Dawn Lorincy, Percy Simpson, David Hickton, Carol Robinson, Chuck andDiane Powell, Tom Galante and Jim McDonald were among the 200 circulating.
