What a great program idea. This shows that the Phoenixville Library isn't just about books. It really is a great istitution that cares about others. Hopefully Karen Johns reads about this and sees the value of the library and not just the perceived hardship that it causes her. They help relieve the real hardships that others feel. I know they also do a lot to benefit Phoenixville residents by making numerous contributions to PACS.
