2016-2017 Annual Giving Campaign
The Downingtown Library's Annual Giving Campaign will begin November 1st...letters will be sent and information also will be available at the Library.  We hope we can count on you for your support.  The money raised in the Annual Drive is extremely important to the successful operation of the library and helps provide children, teens, and adults with a variety of literacy materials, public computers, online services, and educational
and cultural programs. 
Thank you in advance for your help!

THANK YOU FOR MAKING
LINKS FOR THE LIBRARY & LIBRARY LOVE
A HUGE SUCCESS!

 
Links for the Library was a Successful Event!
Despite the July heat, the second annual Links for the Library had quite a turnout!  Several golfers enjoyed a fun day of golf and other festivities at the Downingtown Country Club.  The Library would like to THANK our sponsors of this event: Roberts Subaru, AmeriDrill, Inc.,  Belfor USA Group. Inc., and the many hole sponsors and numerous volunteers.  Please save the date for next year's event which will take place on
July 31, 2017 at
Whitford Country Club in Exton.
 
Library Love raised just over $8,000!
The Library would like to thank Mr. Downingtown for doing a great job as our auctioneer.  Also, a huge THANK YOU goes out to the Kohls Kares volunteers for their time and the $500 grant, Roberts Subaru, Station Taproom, McDonalds, In Motion Physical Therapy, Valocchi and Fischer, and Framers Market for sponsoring our event, and for Wegmans for being our dessert sponsor.  And thank you to Senator Andy Dinniman for starting our live auction.  We couldn't have done it without you!
