Fines Are No Longer Fine at Cooper-Siegel Community Library and Sharpsburg Community Library!
We know library patrons are busy, and sometimes an item comes back a few days late. We want to make using the Library easy and inclusive for all patrons. Removing fines will increase access to all the books, movies and materials that you want and need!
Why is this important?
Even though the Library’s materials and services are free to the community, overdue fines can keep people away from the Library and inequitably restrict access to library resources. Going fine free will remove barriers for our patrons, so more people can enjoy the Library!
Please read our Fine Free Policy FAQ for more information.
Fox Chapel Parking Permit Online Form
The dog park application has moved online! Please fill out this form. Stop into the library after to pay for and/or pick up your sticker. You can also call us at 412-828-9520 x5015 to pay with a credit card and we can mail your sticker. When you come in to pay, we accept cash, check (made out to Cooper-Siegel) or credit card. You can also stop into the library and we’ll fill out the online form with you. Please note: all lots that require parking permits are posted with signs. They are: Riding Meadow Park, Lockhart Trail parking area off Hemlock Hollow Road, and the parking area opposite Hardie Valley Park on Old Mill Road. If you plan to walk your dog in any of these parks, you must purchase a parking permit and park in one of these designated areas.
