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 will be delivered and installed this summer, and will be a significant upgrade from our current models.

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.

State and Federal Tax Forms Now Available

Federal (IRS) and Pennsylvania personal income tax forms are now available at the library, including the PA-1000 Rent Rebate form. Supplies of forms are limited, but library staff can print extra copies of forms on request. (Standard printing fees apply.) Please note that library staff cannot answer tax questions or tell you which forms you need if you do not know; consult an authorized tax preparer for these questions.
