Donations Policy

Halifax Public Libraries encourages gifts of money and bequests to the Library. The Library is a registered charity under the Canadian Income Tax Act: Individuals and groups may thus receive income tax benefits for financial contributions. These contributions will be used for Library materials, programming or equipment.

If the donor wishes to specify the use to which money is to be put, a special agreement with the Library is necessary at the time that the donation is made.

The Library is pleased to accept gifts of print and non-print materials which can be integrated into existing collections and which fit collection development policies. Classifications, shelving, access, location and disposal will be determined by the Library. The Library reserves the right to dispose of gifts not added to its collection. The Library does not evaluate materials for tax receipt purposes.
