John Balkovec Pittsburgh Collection
Today we’re proud to dedicate the John Balkovec Pittsburgh Collection. The late Mr. Balkovec was active and well known in many local community institutions, as well as a former board member of Dormont Public Library. We are grateful to the Balkovec famly for their contribution to the library, and we hope you’ll take a look and share John’s love for his hometown.
