Have Questions?
Do we have to bring the formal wear back to the library?

No. Teens are welcome to keep the items they select at Prom Drive giveaway events.

Can I try on formal wear during Prom Drive giveaway events?

Yes, however, privacy is limited. We ask that you wear under-clothing (undershirts, sports bras, leotards, etc.) that will make it easy for you to change. Do not wear makeup when trying on items. It can get on the clothes and we don't have a dry-cleaning budget.

Can parents choose from the library’s selection?

Caregivers are welcome to browse giveaway events at their teens’ discretion, but it is the library’s intention that the formalwear and accessories donated for the Prom Drive will selected and worn by youth. We strongly encourage teens to attend themselves.
