After the success of our Fall Harvest Covered Dish Dinner, we’ve decided to hold a springtime event. Join us on Wednesday, April 23, at 6:30 PM for our springtime covered dish dinner.
We’re looking for members of the community to bring a covered dish dinner that represents your heritage or culture. If you would be gracious enough to prepare either a main dish, side dish, dessert, etc. in the quantity that you would prepare for yourself and anyone you bring with you, plus around 10 more, we will supply the coffee, tea, soda, plates, cups, and utensils.
The evening is free and our goal is to gather enough families and individuals to share a meal comprised of each others’ cultures.
When you register, please let us know how many are coming and what type of food you plan to bring. All foods should be chilled or heated to the desired temperatures before serving; we do have a refrigerator and microwave if necessary. To register, call 412-531-8754. Please register by April 18.
Tax forms and instruction booklets are now available at Dormont Public Library while supplies last. If you need a form that we do not have, please ask in the computer lab and we can print forms for you. (Standard printing charges apply.)
Links to local, county, state, and federal tax websites, as well as information about filing tax returns electronically, are available on our tax resources page.
Library staff cannot fill out tax forms for you, tell you what forms you need if you do not know, or provide financial advice. Please consult a certified tax professional if you need assistance with your taxes.
You are invited to join an ongoing effort to improve public libraries in Allegheny County. The Allegheny County Library Association and the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh have set up a web site soliciting feedback from library patrons about the services you believe county libraries should provide. If you would like to be a part of the conversation, read the background information posted at www.countycitylibraries.org, then click the “Get Involved” link to complete the online feedback form.
You can now subscribe to the Dormont Public Library email newsletter. We will periodically send a newsletter to subscribers with information and updates on upcoming programs and events. Newsletters will never be sent more than once a week, and we will never sell or share your information with third parties.
You can also follow us on Facebook to keep up to date on current events at the library.
Dormont Public Library is now accepting donations of expired manufacturer’s coupons. Overseas military commissaries will accept expired coupons for up to 6 months after their printed expiration date. We will take the expired coupons and donate them to a servicemember’s family stationed overseas. All you have to do is drop them off at the front desk.
