RAD Pass will bring cultural literacy and learning to life by connecting community members to Pittsburgh's cultural resources through their local library.
With partners at Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, Kelly-Strayhorn Theater, New Hazlett Theater, Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures, Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, Pittsburgh Opera, and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is preparing to offer RAD Pass, a service that offers Allegheny County residents access to free or discounted passes to area cultural attractions with a library card from any Allegheny County library.
While Covid-19-related closures this spring has delayed the timeline for the RAD Pass launch, CLP has spent the past several months doing behind-the-scenes work so that they will be prepared to launch the service when our partners are ready. To date, CLP has:
- Purchased ePass software to promote and “check out” pass offers
- Collaborated with eiNetwork to configure the ePass platform to work with our Integrated Library System software
- Developed a branding concept and artwork
- Tested a demo version of the RAD Pass site
CLP is looking forward to scheduling a demonstration of the RAD Pass site with our partners soon. We are excited to help bring the arts and cultural opportunities to our community through this service.
