Donate to Your Library

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 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. Your donation will make a difference for people in our community today.

You may donate now by clicking on the Canada Helps Donation Button:
