Dear WVPL Partner:

Do you remember taking your kids to see Ms. Michelle perform story time at the library?  Some of you might be bringing your grandchildren now.  Remember how joyfully they sang and danced and were so excited to come to the library to read and get books? As a loyal donor, you have been providing these wonderful educational opportunities to thousands of children each year. 

Will you continue to partner with us to increase and enhance educational classes and workshops by expanding the Ambler Branch? The library plans to add 2,458 square feet of additional space, including:

  • A large meeting/presentation space (capacity 80 people) for community and educational programming, which can be divided into two spaces as needed;
  • One small meeting space/conference room (eight people) for studying and community group meetings;
  • A new lobby and vestibule with space for parking strollers;
  • An expanded children's collection area; and
  • An ADA compliant entryway, lobby and facilities.

You are an integral part of the community fabric, working with the library to provide early literacy education, computer access and educational enrichment for all ages.  You can help thousands more children and adults find a space to study, to meet, to read and to socialize with neighbors.

This renovation and expansion project will cost 3.1 million dollars and the library is lucky to have other great partners like you. The Wissahickon School District has already helped the library secure a low interest loan for $2,045,000 towards the project.  The library was awarded a $750,000 Keystone Grant to improve the library.  The library board is currently in the process of raising $400,000 in our capital campaign, and so far, has garnered pledges of $279,983, so we just need $120,017 to meet our goal.  Won't you help more people to improve their education, to develop their job skills and to enhance their personal lives?

You will help your neighbors grow and thrive for generations to come.  You will empower children to dream and to achieve.  You will help children find a happy home away from home, where they feel safe and connected, a place where they are nurtured and supported. 

Won't you help Ms. Michelle educate the children?  We are asking you to make a one-time personally significant donation to the Ambler Branch Renovation.

We are so grateful for your generosity in partnering with us.

With sincere appreciation,

Anne Frank, Library Director
