Donations to our Library

Are you interested in making a donation to the library? We accept monetary and physical items year round. Please note we are a registered charity and provide any financial donation of $20+ with a tax receipt. We do not issue cash equivalent receipts for donated items.

Physical Donations

We accept gently used books, movies, and audiobooks. Due to limitations on space we only accept 1 box of material at a time. Please contact the manager for large volume donations. 

We Are Unable to Accept:

  • Musty or water damaged material
  • Encyclopedias, Textbooks, Magazines, or Reader’s Digest Books
  • Books, Movies or Audio Books without cases/covers
  • VHS or Cassette Tapes

What Happens to My Donations?

We receive a large amount of donated material. While some may be added to our collection, others are sold in our used book sale. Donated material becomes property of the library per Library Policies.

Financial Donations

The library uses financial donations to fund operations. Donations assist the library in reducing user fees and supports value added services.

Donations can be made in person by cash or cheque. Remote donations can be made by mailing a cheque to the address below, etransfer funds to quoting your contact info in the message field, or through our Canada Helps account.
