A Letter from the DirectorLatest News from ACLA


Although Allegheny County is expected to enter the yellow phase of reopening on Friday, May 15, we do not have an estimated opening date for the library at this time. Plans to re-open county libraries are being drafted in coordination with the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and other Allegheny County Library Association member libraries.

Since the timeline for libraries re-opening is not clear yet, item due dates have been extended once again. Items will now be due on June 15, 2020, including any items whose due dates were extended previously. Please continue to hold onto any checked-out items until we announce that we are ready to accept returns.

The health and safety of patrons and staff is of the utmost importance to us and will be the foundation of our plans going forward. We thank all of our patrons and neighbors in Dormont and Allegheny County for your patience and understanding in these extraordinary circumstances.

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.
