Author Visit with Rich Gazarik

Pittsburgh is a hardworking city. And hard workers sometimes enjoy the occasional spirit. So, when Prohibition hit the Steel City, it created a level of violence and corruption residents had never witnessed. Join author Richard Gazarik as he details the shady side of the Steel City during a tumultuous era.

Gazarik is a former reporter for the Tribune-Review and has written several books about historical events in the Pittsburgh area.

Block Party

Thanks to a generous grant from the State of Pennsylvania, we have a LOT of really fun blocks, everything from large wooden shapes to Lincoln Logs to Magna Tiles. We invite families and children (under 6) to come in and play and build!

Lego Club
