Invest in our community by supporting your library.

Together we give. Image of Library employee reading with two little girls.

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 programs to meet the needs of our community. Your financial gift, large or small, will help the Brockville Public Library continue to offer equal access to information, culture and recreation to everyone in our community.

The Brockville Public Library is a registered charity. All donations $10 and above are eligible for a donation tax receipt.

“Your service to the community is invaluable. A real credit to Brockville.”
– Library donor, via CanadaHelps

Other Ways to Give

As a registered charity, the Library is also able to issue tax receipts for in-kind services.
