Introducing the RAD Summer Staycation

RAD Summer Staycation

This summer, some of Pittsburgh’s favorite attractions will offer more than 100,000 free admissions. All you need is an Allegheny County library card and a RAD Pass reservation.

Organizations participating in RAD Summer Staycation replenish offers daily. Please continue to check RADPass.org frequently.

Allegheny Regional Asset District

The Allegheny Regional Asset District – RAD – invests in Allegheny County's quality of life through financial support of libraries, parks and trails, arts and cultural organizations, regional attractions, sports and civic facilities, and public transit.

With half of the proceeds from Allegheny County's additional one percent sales and use tax, RAD has invested more than $2.5 billion in our regional assets since its inception. An additional $2.5 billion has gone directly to the County and its 128 municipalities for property tax relief and local government services. RAD is a time-tested solution that works for the economy, for assets, for citizens, for municipalities – for all. RAD works here.

Made Local with Anna Monardo

After Italy: A Family Memoir of Arranged Marriage is the story of two marriages undone by a dowry and the fallout from that rift on three generations of a Southern Italian family. Enlisting Calabrian folklore, epigenetics, and psychology, Monardo writes from both sides of the ocean, charting her grandfathers’ immigration to Braddock, a Pittsburgh steel town; her father’s wartime as a medical student in Naples; the family’s marriages—including her own—that were tainted by an Old World curse; and an unlikely path to international adoption.
