Your Donation is Needed!
Donations are essential for the Library to continue to provide quality programs, services, and materials for all ages of Library visitors.
While tax based funding and basic building maintenance that is provided by the City of Brockville covers most of the Library budget, we are increasingly challenged to provide quality resources and programming to meet the needs of our community.
Please give as generously as you can because your donation will make a difference for people in our community today.
My Giving Library
We have an annual giving campaign with the goal of $15,000 per year. Additionally please see our My Giving Library Letter & Brochure for how you can give, what you can give to and what you will receive for giving.
Other Ways to Give
You can honour the memory of a loved one, friend or colleague by making a memorial contribution to the Brockville Public Library. Then families will be notified and the donor will receive a tax receipt. In-Memoriam Form
You can also purchase a new book for the library and be the first one to read your selection. Then you will receive a tax receipt and a book plate will be placed in your book in acknowledgment of your thoughtfulness. Alternatively you can suggest a title of your choice, or ask a staff member.
