25th Anniversary Celebration
WACL turns 25 this year, with plenty of programs & prizes all year round. 25 years is a huge milestone for the library, so we are celebrating all year. Check out our 25th Anniversary page for details and learn how you can help us celebrate!
New *American Girl* Collection
The Allegheny County Library Association (ACLA) is creating a lending library of American Girl® (AG) historical dolls. The lending library will ultimately be available across all libraries in Allegheny County. To test the concept and develop best practices, ten libraries, including Western Allegheny Community Library, are participating in a pilot program. Ask at the Children's Department for details.
How Can I Help?
Please consider donating any new or gently used American Girl® historical dolls, clothing and accessories, or hardcover books. Your doll donation would be one of the earliest "members" of the Collection and help start the pilot program. Don't have a doll to donate? We gladly accept monetary donations of any amount. Interested in a larger donation? Consider sponsoring a complete doll kit for $200! You can donate online by visiting the ACLA Crowdrise page.
