The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh plans to open its Downtown and Business branch on Saturdays beginning April 20.

The change makes the Downtown branch the last library in the system to be open at least six days a week, library officials announced Thursday at their annual public meeting. The Downtown branch will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.

Bolstered by a $900,000 increase in money raised from a dedicated library tax in the city, the Carnegie Library also plans to add hours of operation at 17 branches beginning the week of April 14.

It was the second public meeting for the library board, which decided to hold open meetings in response to community demand after the board voted in 2009 to close several branches, an action that was later rescinded.
