Summer Reading: Thank You

Thanks to everyone who participated in our first-ever Virtual Summer Reading Program for 2020. We learned a lot from the experience and we hope you enjoyed it. We'll send a survey to participants in the next week or so; if you have a few minutes, we'd love to know what you thought about the program.

Curbside Updates

Now that the catalog is back in service, we've retired the Local Holds form in order to avoid confusion. Please place all item orders through the library catalog. Pickup is available daily from Monday-Saturday during our posted staff hours.

You'll receive a telephone, text, or email notification when your items are ready; call us 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
