In order to allow our patrons to get new books, audiobooks, CDs, and DVDs while still adhering to recommended public health guidelines, Dormont Library now offers a Curbside Pickup service.
Here’s how it works:
For items owned by Dormont Library: use our online form to schedule a pickup and specify the items you’d like. Items from our collection can usually be picked up the next business day. We’ll retrieve the items from our shelves and check them out to you.
For items owned by other libraries: Use the countywide online catalog to order your items. When you’re notified that they’ve arrived, call or use our online form to schedule a pickup. There will be extended processing times for items arriving from other libraries; all items coming into the library are quarantined for 72 hours before being checked in.
When you arrive for your scheduled pickup, give us a call at 412-531-8754 or let us know what your vehicle looks like. If you prefer no-contact pickup, open your trunk and we’ll put your items there, or meet us at the front door and we’ll hand over a bag.
(Please be aware that we are not allowing patrons to enter the building under any circumstances at this time. When we are ready to begin offering indoor services, we will make an announcement.)
If you have any questions or need help placing a hold order, please call us at 412-531-8754 during ourstaff hours listed below.
If you’d like to support the library, you can also order one of our fundraising items (handmade beaded bookmarks, Sarris chocolate bars, and spider plants with planters) and pick them up at the same time as your books. If you’re interested, click the “Add a Fundraiser Item” button after completing the curbside pickup order form, or ask when you place your order by phone.

Curbside Ordering Tips
Items owned by Dormont Library will be available more quickly than items owned by other libraries. Click here to begin a search for items from our collection.
Pickups can be scheduled any time between 30 minutes after opening time and 30 minutes prior to closing time on a given day. Please allow 1 business day for us to get your order ready.
Please plan to be at the library within 30 minutes of your scheduled pickup time. If you can’t make it, give us a call so we can reschedule pickup or cancel your order.
You can drop off items in the outside drop box without an appointment. We can only accept returns via the outside drop box at this time.
