HELP US BUILD A NEW LIBRARY!

By now, you’ve probably heard that Cochranton Area Public Library

is in the process of building a new facility to replace our current aging building.

 

You can help right now by stopping by the library and purchasing a one-of-a-kind bird painted on a piece of slate.  The cost is $15 and ALL PROCEEDS will go into the building fund!

These very special slates were beautifully painted by our very own Jackie Brown.  Jackie generously donated them to the Library Building Project.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
