Making our patrons feel like family since 1936.
Updated: March 30, 2020
In furtherance of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s efforts to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Governor Tom Wolf on March 30 extended stay-at-home and business closure orders through April 30, 2020. In compliance with these orders, Dormont Public Library will remain closed until further notice.
This closure may be extended at the discretion of Gov. Wolf, local health authorities, and/or the Office of Commonwealth Libraries. Additional updates will be posted on our website as well as our Facebook and Twitter accounts as the situation develops.
All programs which would normally be scheduled during this period have been cancelled.
If possible, we encourage you to use remote access to library collections:
If you don’t have a library card, you can register online for a temporary card which will allow you to access eResources. When county libraries re-open, you can verify your address and upgrade your card.
Health authorities recommend that in order to slow the spread of the virus, unless you are engaged in essential work or are a healthcare provider yourself, you should avoid leaving your home. Even if you are not currently experiencing symptoms, you may be a carrier of the virus.
If you are displaying symptoms of what may seem to be cold, flu, or bronchitis, especially fever, shortness of breath, or persistent coughing, call your doctor or other healthcare provider.
The illness does not discriminate by age or health; even young and healthy people may experience life-threatening symptoms. However, the following populations are most at risk:
Because this is such a rapidly evolving situation, Dormont Public Library will continue to monitor national and state health authorities’ recommendations and consult with the appropriate professionals to ensure the health and safety of all.
We appreciate your patience and understanding and look forward to continuing to serve you.
