Invest in your community. Support your local library.

Donations are essential for the Library to continue to provide quality programs, services and materials for all ages of Library visitors. While public funding covers the majority of the Library budget, we are increasingly challenged to meet the growing needs of our community and are asking for your support to help us thrive. Every donation, large or small, will go towards the important mission of providing equitable access to information, recreation and community services 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.

Other Ways to Give


Purchase a new book for the library and be the first one to read your selection. 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 by inquiring at the library.

Please ask our library staff how to Adopt-a-Book, Dewey number, or book club set.

Donations of books and other materials

We welcome your donations, however, due to space limitations we can only accept 10 books from each donor.

  • Fiction material less than 5 years copyright date
  • Nonfiction material less than 2 years copyright date
  • No reader’s digest, magazines, encyclopedia, textbooks
  • No damaged, musty or  mildewed items

Donate securities or mutual funds

A donation of securities or mutual funds is the most efficient way to give charitably. Since capital gains taxes don’t apply, our charity receives the full fair market value when the security is sold, and you get a tax receipt which reflects your larger contribution. This allows you to give more and get more.

Memorial donations

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.
