Thank you to everyone who came out this summer! Check back soon for details on KidsPlay 2017!

Enliven and enrich your child’s summer with KidsPlay at Market Square. This summer, children and their families/caregivers can enjoy fun and educational programs and activities complete with crafts, stories, and special guests. Children can plant their own tree one week, see how cartoons come to life the next, dance with the symphony and ballet, and even touch a real fire truck, all in Downtown’s historic Market Square. The free program series produced by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership introduces children to a new and exciting learning experience in one of Downtown's most popular destinations. 

*Programs are geared toward pre-school aged children and welcome families, caregivers, schools, day cares and camps.

Release your inner bookworm and book-it to the Reading Room @ Market Square. After KidsPlay, walk a few short steps to the Library’s Reading Room and pick up some great reads for a bargain. Each book you buy supports the Carnegie Library – and for only $1 or $2 you can start your own personal library!
