Capital Campaign


The mission of the Delavan Aram Public Library Foundation, Inc. (DAPLF) is to provide a vehicle for foundations, corporations, and individuals to give grants and donations to the Aram Public Library for financial support of its current and future needs.


The Delavan Aram Public Library Foundation (DAPLF) is delighted to announce we’ve reached the Phase I goal of $1 million dollars in pledges and donations towards the Aram Public Library building expansion project.  We still have more to do, and Phase II of the capital campaign is now underway.

Women with Words


Women With Words is an initiative to sponsor the new Youth Gallery Wall at the Aram Public Library in Delavan. The concept is to celebrate women as a legacy of love – ourselves, mothers, sisters, grandmothers, daughters, and friends. The Youth Gallery Wall – almost 50 feet in length – connects the Adult, Makerspace and Children’s Areas together in the new building. A contribution is $500 with the honoree’s name featured on this prominent wall with an overall fundraising goal of $50,000.



There are Naming Opportunities for major donations. DAPLF is happy to give tours and provide information on currently available opportunities. If interested in a Naming Opportunity please indicate on the Pledge Form.
