Thanks to Local Municipalities for their Support

The Downingtown Library relies heavily on support from Caln, Downingtown, East Brandywine, East Caln, Uwchlan, Wallace, and West Bradford to maintain its high level of library service.  But in addition, municipalities have stepped up to the plate and made a one-time contribution to the Library's Capital Campaign!  East Brandywine, East Caln, Uwchlan, and West Bradford townships each have committed to $10,000 to the project.  And the Borough of Downingtown has made an in-kind donation of over $10,000.  Thanks to all for recognizing the value of our local library!

A Family Gift ~ There is Strength in Numbers!

Downingtown Library recently received a generous Family Gift from the Brown Family.  Members of the family from far and wide pooled their resources and made a donation in memory of Mary Downing Brown, matriarch of the family and a great library patron.  This donation will be used to fund the Children's Garden at the new library; the Garden will be named for Mary Downing Brown.  What a wonderful way to remember or honor a beloved family member...or create a lasting family legacy.  Please consider following the Brown Family's example and organize your Family Gift today!

  THE NEW DOWNINGTOWN LIBRARY

Renovations are underway at the Micken Building at 122 Wallace Avenue to create a new home for the Downingtown Library.  Located in the center of town and adjacent to Kerr Park, the new facility provides:

                                                                                      • ADA accessibility
                                                                                      • An expanded technology center
                                                                                      • An enhanced collection of resources
                                                                                      • Ample parking and a drive-up book drop
                                                                                      • A comfortable Community Center

This excellent adaptive re-use of property allows the Library to function more efficiently and effectively as a 21st century resource center for the Greater Downingtown Community.  To learn more. click on Capital Campaign News.
