The last Saturday of each month (May through August). Our first destination will be England and Wales. We will be serving tea or soda and a snack. Reserve your seat by calling the library at 412-264-3502.
All juvenile DVDs will circulate three weeks (21 days) – with two possible renewals starting June 1st. Current, the limit is 1 week with two possible renewals. This will make it easier for everyone when they check out children’s books which are 3 weeks and DVDs. Five children’s DVD’s can be checked out at a time.
All children’s DVD’s fines will also be reduced from $1.00 per day to $.50 per day. Currently, the library offers a collection of nearly 1,000 DVDs aimed at children and families.
We hope that these new policies will encourage additional borrowing among our users. Stop by the library to pick up DVDs for your next family night!
