As of Wednesday, March 1, Meadowbrook Public Library in Shawsville, a branch of the Montgomery-Floyd Regional Library System, is offering free prom dresses to area high school students.
High school students in the New River Valley are invited to make an appointment by calling (540) 268-1964 to browse the library’s collection of donated prom dresses. The dresses are now available in a variety of sizes, styles, and colors to suit every student’s individual taste. Each student is eligible to choose one dress from the collection for free.
Meadowbrook Public Library understands that the cost of attending prom can be a significant financial cost for families. Thus, the library believes in supporting the community in any way it can, such as offering free prom dresses to alleviate some of the financial strain and thus allow students to enjoy their prom.
The library asks that students who are interested in selecting a prom dress make an appointment in advance. It is open to any current high school student who needs a dress for prom.
All dresses are absolutely free.
