Regional Asset District (RAD) and the Keystone Grant

As you may already have seen reported in the news, the Regional Asset District (RAD) has voted to allocate 3.1 million dollars to county libraries this year to purchase new PCs.

The new PCs were installed at Dormont Library in mid-May.

We are also pleased to announce that Dormont Public Library, in partnership with the Borough of Dormont, has received a $50,000 Keystone Grant this year for a feasibility study towards renovation or expansion of the library. More news is coming soon about the study and how you can contribute.

We are truly grateful to RAD and the State Library of Pennsylvania for their support with these important projects.

Rosalind Candy Castle Chocolate: $2

Dormont Library is now offering chocolate bars from Rosalind Candy Castle as fundraiser items! These bars are a little bigger than a 2-ounce fundraiser bar, at 2.25 oz, but the price is the same. The library will receive $1 from the purchase of each $2 bar.

Plain milk and dark chocolate bars are available, as well as crisp rice, almond, caramel, and peanut butter. Treat yourself and support the library the next time you visit; fundraiser candy bars are available at the front desk.
