Rachel Kohl Library receives generous donations from Willie State

Concord – Lee Gracekiwis, a longtime resident of Chester Heights, joined her brother, Edward Willie, on August 10 for 202 606.60 Rachel Kohl Community Library, 687 Smithbridge Road, Gle Mills. The event was attended by Chester Heights Councilor Susan Clark, Rachel Kohl Community Library Director Susan Sternberg, Library Board member and other board members.

Lee’s parents, Wilbur Willie and Paraly Willie, who donated, recently had their property closed. They have lived in Concord and Chester Heights since 1967. Until his retirement from Granite Farm State until 2003. Both were library members and hardworking readers. Mrs. Willie has been a teacher at Concord Primary School for more than 20 years. Mr. Willie was a retired Air Force officer who served for more than 20 years, then taught at DCC for another 20 years to develop his CAD program.

The library in Concord serves five municipalities and has 14,000 cardholders. The library is not fully funded by the communities it supports and 40% of the budget is based on donations. As the private Mills area explodes, the use of libraries and additional space is important. Library has been seeking to donate a key stone to the public library to expand the library. However, the grant requires related funds.

The library’s recent donation from Willie’s family gives the library the necessary funds to receive the gift. According to a press release from the library, “The donation period is unusual and the size of the donation will change the future of the library. The library is considering naming the site after Willie’s family.
