The West End branch of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is scheduled to reopen Saturday with a community celebration from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The library closed seven months ago for a $1.7 million renovation that included adding air conditioning, a new slate roof, an elevator and refurbished windows. The library closed several times last summer because of the heat.

The celebration features self-guided tours, 3D printing demonstrations, teen activities, crafts and a performance by the Pittsburgh Musical Theatre.

The renovations were paid for through the library's capital campaign funds.
