Donate

When you make a donation to the Library, you have a lasting, positive impact on your community.

Few places level the playing field and bring the community together like the Library. We're committed to providing free access for everyone to a diverse collection, vibrant spaces, and engaging events. Whether big or small, your donations help make this possible.

Ways to give

One of the easiest ways to give is to make a donation online

The form only takes a few minutes to complete and allows you to:

  • Make personal or corporate donations
  • Set the amount of your donation as a one-time or recurring gift
  • Give to the area of greatest need or request that funds go to support a particular area
  • Make tribute or memorial donations in honour of someone

You can also make a donation by:

When you give

  • You will receive a tax receipt for all donations of $10 or more.
  • For each donation of $25 or more, you have the option to have a bookplate placed in a book in our collection to acknowledge your donation. You can choose the book, or we can, and you can pick the text for the bookplate—it's a great way to honour a friend, colleague or favourite teacher, or to remember a loved one.

Donating books and other items

We accept donations of some books and audio visual materials, either to add to our collection or sell in branch book sales.
