GIVING TUESDAY MONTCO
You’ve shopped on Black Friday & Cyber Monday…now join with WVPL on Nov. 29 for GivingTuesdayMontco! It is a national movement to create a day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. The Ambler Branch currently has no ramp to make it accessible to all community members. Your donation, on that day, will help fund a feasibility study for the library to determine whether a renovation or relocation of the Ambler Branch will best serve the changing needs in Ambler Borough.  The library applied for a $10,000 grant and needs $3,500 more to complete the Feasibility Study. You can help by clicking on "Donate" on Nov. 29!
