The Cooper-Siegel Community Library is an independent 501c3 non-profit organization. We are generously supported by the Fox Chapel Borough, the Allegheny Regional Asset District and the Commonwealth of PA. Other funding is provided by Aspinwall Borough, Blawnox Borough, Indiana Township, O’Hara Township, Sharpsburg Borough and our patrons. We rely upon your financial support to provide the high quality materials, programs and services you’ve come to expect. Following are some of the ways you can support our Operating Budget each year.
You make the difference between a good library and a great library! Your contributions allow us to provide high quality materials, programs and services that our community needs and deserves. Please make your gift today!
A tax-deductible gift can be made by mailing a check to Cooper-Siegel Community Library at 403 Fox Chapel Road, Pittsburgh, PA, 15238. We accept gifts from donor-advised funds (DAFs), so if you have a DAF, please consider recommending to your financial advisor that they support the Community Library Association.

Book Store in the Library
We have an on-going, volunteer-driven book sale. Stop by during library hours and find books, videos and audios on a variety of topics priced from $.50 to $3.00. These books are great as gifts, personal reading or home décor.
Our volunteer-run Book Store brings in over $15,000 of much needed operating dollars. Cleaning house? Moving? Making room for new books? We gladly welcome your tax-deductible donations. Please bring them to the back entrance. We will gladly provide you with a receipt for tax purposes. Please call ahead if you need assistance with a particularly large donation.
The Library receives the majority of its funding from public sources. Your voice is needed to ensure that the Library remains strong. Contact your elected officials and the media to tell them how much the library is worth to you. Encourage your family and friends to become patrons of the library.
