Dear Library Patrons, I am excited to provide the latest information regarding the township’s 520 Virginia Drive transformation project and its potential impact on the public library.

Dear Library Patrons, Thank you for your continued interest and support of our wonderful public library. Today I am excited to share with you this recent Ambler Gazette article regarding the very recent action by the Upper Dublin Township Board of Commissioners to purchase the vacant two-story building (former pharma company offices) at 520 Virginia Drive.
