Many Dormont residents will already have received a copy of our annual fundraising letter, or seen it in the Borough newsletter. But what if we told you there’s a way to make your contributions count for more during the month of September?

This September, libraries across Allegheny County are inviting residents to participate in a special fundraising collaboration to show support for their local library. Now in its third year, “Love Your Library,” a county-wide initiative developed by the Allegheny County Library Association and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh provides a way for residents to “show their love” to their local library. During the month of September, all donations made to more than 46 area library systems will go even further. The Jack Buncher Foundation is providing matching funds for all donations made to any library in Allegheny County up to $500 per donor per library.

All of our fundraisers are eligible for these matching funds!

Direct contributions are, of course, always welcome, but especially so during Love Your Library month.
