Limited Browsing Begins April 6

Limited browsing will begin on Tuesday, April 6th. Browsing times initially will be Tuesdays from 11:30 – 11:45 and 12:00 – 12:15. We are working hard to ensure everyone’s safety. Only one person will be allowed during each visit and will be open to patrons 16 and over. To schedule your appointment, call us at 412-531-8754. For more information, see the Library Service Updates page.

Book Sale: Temporarily Out of Stock

We are temporarily out of items for the book sale and book grab bags. We hope to be able to offer these again soon.

Tax Update

The deadline for filing state, federal, and local income taxes has been extended to May 17, 2021. We will continue providing tax forms and information through that date. We strongly recommend that if you will need documents scanned, copied, or faxed that you contact us at least two business days in advance; with our reduced staff and operating hours we may be unable to accept requests for document services without prior notice. As a reminder, library staff are not able to tell you which forms you need if you do not know the form number. Library staff are also prohibited from filling out forms or logging into websites on your behalf, due to liability issues. If you need tax preparation assistance, please dial 211 to find out about free tax prep services provided by the United Way.

Continuing Precautions

The library building is not open to patrons except during designated browsing by appointment, but staff are available six days a week by telephone or email to answer questions, arrange curbside pickup, or assist with remote document services. Read more about quarantine procedures and what we're doing to keep the community safe.

Summer Reading Story & Craft Videos: Week 8

We’re making up for lost time with a new batch of Summer Reading story and craft videos! We’ve got animals from antelope to zebra, a story about what happens when boys and girls don’t quite see eye-to-eye, and an origami project to make an elephant face. We have one more set of videos lined up for the final week of Summer Reading, so please look forward to them!

Grab Bag Book Sale: $3

Not sure what to read? Let us surprise you with a bag of books. Name your preferred genre or genres, and we’ll put together a bag with (depending on size) 6-10 items from our Book Sale shelves for just $3. They’ll be yours to keep.

Summer Reading Story & Craft #8: The Rabbit Listened

Amy reads The Rabbit Listened, written and illustrated by Cori Doerrfeld and published by Dial Books. Taylor’s just lost something special, and all the animals want to help. But only one of them has what Taylor really needs right now. Afterwards, learn how to make your own rabbit hand puppet.

Summer Reading Saturday Storytime: What About Me?

Amy reads What About Me?, written and illustrated by Ed Young and published by Philomel Books. A young boy wants knowledge, so he seeks out the Grand Master to teach him. The Grand Master tells the boy to bring him a small carpet. What could this mean? Afterwards, make your own small carpet with paper, yarn, and beads.

Summer Origami* Club: Make a Rabbit

*There’s cutting involved in this one, so it’s kirigami rather than origami. Practice traditional papercrafts with Amy. This week, find out how to make a rabbit. Maybe it came from the moon…?

Summer Reading Story & Craft #7: First Painter

Amy reads First Painter, by Kathryn Lasky with illustrations from Rocco Baviera, published by Dorling Kindersley Publishing.

The moon of the Singing Grass has come and gone three times and still there is no rain. Mishoo’s people are relying on her to catch a strong dream and bring rain.

Afterwards, try out your own “cave painting” with wrinkled paper, crayons, and your imagination.
