Health screenings and technology programs for kids are part of November’s offerings at the Carnegie Library of McKeesport, said Vincent D’Alesio, library director.

“Thank you to everyone who attended the outstanding events during the busy month of October,” D’Alesio said. “You can see pictures of all the fun we had on our Facebook page.”

The library will be participating in the city’s Salute to Santa Parade on Nov. 20 with a “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” themed float, he said. Nelson’s Transmission Shop in Christy Park has been helping with the preparation of the float, D’Alesio said.
