Tell us what you think about your community and the library! We're trying to better understand the needs in our community so we can better serve our residents. This community study and survey is happening in many communities throughout Allegheny County, including Swissvale and Rankin, and will only take a few minutes to fill out. We'd also appreciate this if you could share this survey with other Swissvale and Rankin residents so we can get the best community snapshot possible. Thank you in advance!"

Happening at the Library...

Love Your Library during the month of September.  Donations made to the library in September will be matched, on a prorated basis, thanks to a generous grant from the Buncher Foundation.

Music at the Library - Many thanks to The Deep Roots for their performance at the Summer Reading Picnic on August 10th.  Their presence was a great addition to the success of the afternoon.

On Saturday evening, September 21, 7:00-9:00 there will be two musical groups to enjoy. From 7-8 pm Quatrewaul (pronounced catterwall), will perform. Quatrewaul consists of a mixture of song genres but all done in the barbershop style of four-part A Cappella harmony.  At approximately 8 pm, The NewLanders will take the stage with Traditional Folk Music.  This is a free concert and no tickets are needed.
