ACME Give Back Where It Counts
Chester Springs Library has been selected as the beneficiary of the ACME GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Reusable Bag Program. The library will receive a $1 donation every time a reusable GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS bag is purchased at the ACME store located at 400 Simpson Drive, Chester Springs during November.
The ACME GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Reusable Bag Program supports our community and the environment, with the goal of making a difference where people live and work. Chester Springs Library Director Nancy Niggel says, “We are thrilled to be selected for this opportunity and very thankful to ACME. Chester Springs Library is one of the smallest libraries in Chester County. Our book nook in the woods is a unique resource located in the Village of Historic Yellow Springs. Support like this allows us to keep offering great programs for all ages.”
