The Danville Public Library has partnered with Danville High School to host two formal dress
giveaway events in anticipation of the school’s May 8th Spring Formal, and the library is currently seeking donations.
The library received over 90 dresses last year but was unable to host a giveaway event due to the pandemic. This years dress giveaway is scheduled for Thursday, April 15 and Wednesday, April 21 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. in the high school’s little theatre. Light snacks and drinks will be provided and
fitting rooms will be available. The dresses come in a variety of styles, colors and sizes and are
available at no cost to the students.
Donations of new or gently used formal dresses may be dropped off at the Library’s Curbside
Pickup/West Side entrance (319 N. Vermilion St.) April 12-16 between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Please note that wedding dresses and damaged items will not be accepted. Specific questions regarding the event or donations may be addressed to the library at 217-477-5220.
