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.



The Carnegie Libraries have launched the RAD Pass ( and begun to heavily market the program. Marketing will continue in to 2022. As of November 12, 2021, there were four organizations with at least one program or event available. RAD staff will continue to monitor the progress of the RAD Pass and hope to see the program expand over time!
