Thank You

Please join our library as we thank the many wonderful and pivotal public servants that have helped our library to receive a $250,000 grant for the structural support of our back hill and alleyway.

Senator Wayne Fontana was at the masthead for this grant and truly made it come to be a reality. Additionally, there was strong support given by Allegheny County Executive, Rich Fitzgerald, and District 12, Council Representative, Jim Ellenbogen, and the Director of Economic Development, Bob Hurley. State Legislator, Dan Miller also assisted the library with the application process and all of the staff members for the previously mentioned departments did their part to make this huge allocation come to be.

We are also grateful to all of the members of the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County for their focused and charitable consideration of this grant and its allocation to our critical situation. We cannot begin to express the true gratitude that we have for all of your efforts and how important they are for the future structural safety of the library and our ability to continue to be an invaluable resource to our community.

Thank you all.

The Board of Directors of Dormont Public Library,
