What is your Library worth to you?
The recent IRS announcement to discontinue mailing individual tax packages to taxpayers will impact the supply of forms available for our patrons. Unfortunately, this announcement was made after placing our order for forms with the IRS last Spring. The Library will have the more common blank tax forms available on a first-come first-served basis. We do not expect delivery of the forms until after January 10, 2011. When the forms are gone, we will not be receiving additional supplies. Any tax form can be printed out from the IRS webpage at 15 cents per page. We regret if this causes any inconvenience.

Membership is free. Participants may pick up a copy of the current selection at the library circulation desk. The group meets once a month for a book discussion.
Library materials are selected, picked up and delivered to Carnegie residents, regardless of age, who are unable to come to the Library because of temporary or permanent limitations. Materials available for circulation include, books, large print books, audio books, videos, music CDs and magazines. Materials are delivered once every three weeks. To apply for this service, please call the Library Director (412-276-3456, x17). This is a volunteer driven service. If you are interested in helping others, please let us know.
Public Display Case
Collecting is a wonderful hobby and is different and unique for everyone. Each patron has their own story about what they collect and why. If you have a collection of items that you would want to share with others, please let us know. Items are displayed in a locked case, usually on loan for one month. Stop and see what we have this month! Download the form, fill it out and sign it and either drop it off or mail it to the library. Display Case Form
