This September, Dormont Public Library and libraries across Allegheny County are inviting our neighbors to show their love!

Now in its eighth 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.

This year we are making a special effort to fundraise in support of our devoted staff!

We have Love Your Library tote bags for $5 at the front desk throughout September, and free Love Your Library lawn signs that you can use to show your support!

Tote bags are also free with a donation of $50 or greater.

Open Your Hearts Fundraiser
Saturday, September 9, 11 AM

This September, we’re asking members of the community to open your hearts in a collaborative art project for Love Your Library month!

  • For a $1 donation, receive a small heart.
  • For a $3 donation, receive a medium heart.
  • For a $5 donation, receive a large heart!

We’ll have plenty of art supplies ready on Saturday, September 9! Come and join other community members and staff as we decorate and link the hearts into a chain that we’ll display through September.

We’re looking forward to seeing your heart!
