Many children visiting the Brandywine Center in Coatesville to receive health care, dental care or behavioral health services come from families who can’t afford to purchase books. The McNeil Children’s Library was created so that each child who visits the Center can take home a book of his or her very own. What makes this special and unique is that the child does not have to return the book, but may treasure the book for years to come…our goal is to encourage and instill a lifelong love of reading!
Support the McNeil Children’s Library
Our goal is to keep the shelves stocked with books, and to keep the environment around the library clean, safe, and welcoming.
Keeping the shelves stocked with books is not as easy as it may seem. Book drives, donations, and fundraisers have kept it going. If you would like to donate new or gently used books or host a book drive, please contact the Brandywine Health Foundation at 610-380-9080 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also donate online now by using our secure donation form.
Thank you for helping us to share the joy of reading.
