Virtual Programming Note

Due to a technical problem, our reading of the first part of Ann Rinaldi's The Redheaded Princess was not able to be posted today. It will instead be posted on Monday afternoon. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Curbside Updates

Thank you to everyone who's been using our Curbside Pickup service! Now that the county shipping department is fulfilling requests again, we have a couple of updates to our pickup procedures. Please place all item orders through the library catalog. Pickup is available daily from Monday-Saturday during our posted staff hours. The automated holds notification system is back to regular service. You should receive telephone, email, or text message notifications when your holds are ready as you did previously. When you receive a hold notification, that means your item has finished its quarantine period and is ready to be checked out to you. After you get the hold notification, call us at 412-531-8754 to arrange your pickup time. Please allow 15 minutes from the time you call for staff to prepare your order and check your items out to you. For large numbers of holds (15+), please allow staff 1 hour to prepare your items. We will place items outside on the small cart by the front door shortly before your pickup time, for no-contact pickup. If you have any questions or need help placing a hold order, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us at 412-531-8754.

Continuing Precautions

The library building is not yet open to patrons, but staff will be available by telephone or email to answer questions or take pickup orders. When we are ready to admit patrons again, we will announce it here. Read more about quarantine procedures and what we're doing to keep the community safe.

Changes to Renewals & Lending Rules

Beginning February 9, 2020, all libraries in the Allegheny County Library Association system made several important changes to the way item renewals work. We encourage all patrons to read the new rules.

Tax Form Availability Notice

IRS tax forms are now available at Dormont Library. The State of Pennsylvania has not provided us with pre-printed tax forms this year, but a limited number of PA-40 and PA-1000 Rent Rebate forms are available. Other state and IRS tax forms can be printed on request; normal printing fees apply.

WQED + Kindness

Dormont Public Library is participating in the WQED + Kindness initiative, encouraging each of us to express kindness to one another. If you’ve done something kind recently and you want to express it, you can add a leaf to our kindness tree by the front door. No act of kindness is too small. You can find out more about the WQED + Kindness program here.

Plant Fundraiser

Keep a little green in your home all year long with our ongoing spider plant sale! Just $3 per plant, and all donations benefit Dormont Library.

Origami Paper Crafts Workshop

Learn the ancient Japanese art of paper folding with our Origami Paper Crafts workshops, held on the fourth Saturday of each month from 1-2 PM. This program is open to adults, teens, and children 3rd grade and up.
