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!  Caln, 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!
