LOVE YOUR LIBRARY!!!

Summer reading is over. School starts soon. We're sad to see summer end but we're excited for SEPTEMBER!


Thanks to the generous support of the Jack Buncher Foundation, donations made to PLEASANT HILLS PUBLIC LIBRARY throughout the month of September will be MATCHED! This September, libraries across Allegheny County are inviting residents to participate in a special fundraising collaboration to show their Library some LOVE by supporting & investing in their libraries.
Please donate by check, cash, or online through the Library’s website: www.pleasanthillslibrary.org

September is also National Library Card Sign Up Month! Children signing up for their first library card will receive a fun goody bag! Stop at the front desk to learn more!

During the month of September, receive a raffle ticket for every children’s and family program you attend and enter to win one of ten pairs of tickets to either the Citizens Bank Children’s Theater Series or the EQT Bridge Theater Series! This contest runs from September 1—30, 2017. 
Winners will be notified Monday, October 2.

Popular children’s book characters will be hidden throughout the children’s department during September. Find all of them to earn a small prize! 
See a staff member downstairs for more details.
