Unfortunately, the Carnegie Library in Phoenix, AZ, remains one of the few that is not open to the public.

In the summer of 2024, we hope to see our visions will realize light, as we excitedly introduce "Ticket-based Gatherings." These events are designed to enrich and engage, featuring discussions on books and authors, music listening sessions, talks from local business leaders, and technology workshops, including podcasting. Our goal is to honor Andrew Carnegie's vision by creating a vibrant space for knowledge exchange and community growth through social gatherings.
