Extended Evening Hours in February

Beginning February 1, we will now be offering later evening hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays! Our new hours of operation for those days will be:

Tuesday & Wednesday: 12 Noon-8 PM

Masks Strongly Recommended

In the interest of the health and safety of patrons and staff, we continue to strongly recommend that all patrons over the age of 2 wear a mask while they are in the building.
Please follow any staff instructions regarding masks.

If you feel sick or if a member of your family is sick, we request that you wait
to visit the library.

If you do not have a mask, we will provide you with one. Please knock on the door or call 412-531-8754 and we will bring a mask out to you.
If you cannot wear a mask, we will make full accomodations by offering you curbside services. Thank you for understanding.

Book Bag Sale: $3 through Feb. 28

For a limited time, take advantage of our Book Bag Sale! Through the end of February we’ll be offering Book Sale bags for just $3 each (normally $5). Not sure how the sale works? Just ask for a bag at the front desk and fill it with books from our Book Sale shelves. Stop by any time that we’re open! Proceeds benefit Dormont Library.

Federal tax forms from the IRS for the 2022 tax year are on their way. Pennsylvania tax forms for the 2022 tax year will not be available until the tax season officially begins on January 19. This includes PA-1000 Rent Rebate forms and instructions.

John Balkovec Pittsburgh Collection

Today we’re proud to dedicate the John Balkovec Pittsburgh Collection. The late Mr. Balkovec was active and well known in many local community institutions, as well as a former board member of Dormont Public Library. We are grateful to the Balkovec famly for their contribution to the library, and we hope you’ll take a look and share John’s love for his hometown.
