Curbside Pickup InformationRemote Printing Information

As of Monday, July 13, you can once again place holds for items using the online catalog.

You'll receive a telephone, text, or email notification when your items are ready; call us or use the curbside pickup form to schedule a time to pick up your items. Please be aware that there will be extended processing times for items received from other libraries.

If you have any questions or need help placing a hold order, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.


Please note that the library building will not be open to patrons, but staff will be available by telephone or email to answer questions or take pickup orders.

We are accepting returns of all items in the outside book drop only. Items entering the library will be quarantined for 72 hours before check-in, but overdue fees will not be charged because of this delay.

For patrons who ordered Popcornopolis popcorn during our popcorn fundraiser earlier this year, your orders are now available to pick up. Some extra popcorn is also available for purchase, but supplies are limited. Call us at 412-531-8754 to arrange a pickup time. Proceeds from popcorn sales support the library.


We will not be able to accept donations of books or other physical items for the remainder of 2020; donations left in the parking lot or the outside drop box will be discarded. All on-site programming for the remainder of 2020 has been suspended, including hosted programs. The Keith Room will not be available for rent.

This year’s Online Summer Reading Program began on June 8, and you can find out more about it right here. In addition to an online reading challenge and more video story/craft projects, we will also be holding a video competition open to all children and their families in Allegheny County.

Our schedule for reopening or the services offered may change at any time depending on guidance from the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, Gov. Tom Wolf’s office, and/or availability of personal protective equipment and sanitizing supplies for staff.
