Excitement is running high in the five municipalities that are served by the Adamstown Area Library. A long-awaited move to a new facility has become a reality.
An Open House was held at the former Adamstown VFW, where a new library for the residents of East and West Cocalico, Brecknock, Adamstown and Denver will be housed. The building is slated to be the library’s new home in 2017.Residents got a glimpse of the plans for their new facility at the Open House. They also learned of the extensive repairs needed to be done before the move is possible. The hope of a new library is not a novelty to the community, but now that hope is within reach. Through their hard work, frugality and optimism, the Friends of the Adamstown Area Library have been preparing for this occasion by saving for the day when a move to a new facility will actually take place. The Friends presented a check for $100,000 to help fund the project.
The Friends have been raising funds for the library for many years through their diverse fundraisers. The profits from their events help sponsor programs, purchase books, CDs, DVDs, etc., and contribute to the ongoing needs of the library. The successful events have the support of the residents and businesses who contribute in different ways to these fundraisers and who also benefit from them.
The Friends donation is in keeping with their goals to support the library and to make a worthwhile learning facility even better. That’s what Friends are for!
