Support the Library

How can you support the Library?

Donations

How do your donations make a difference?

We provide a range of programs, resources and services to the community for people of all ages. Donations to the Library help us to offer greater programming, expand areas of the collection and deliver better library services.

How can I help?

If you would like to make a donation to the Library, tax receipts are available for donations over $15. A donor can make suggestions about how they would like to see their donation spent or have us decide where to spend the funds.

Donation Tree

Consider making a donation of $250 or more and your name or the name of someone you wish to honour will be engraved on a bronze leaf and placed on the Library's donation tree, found in the front foyer of our building. Each inscribed leaf can be engraved to your wording specifications.

Corporate Sponsorship

The Gravenhurst Public Library hosts special events year round and your organization, company or business can help us add more value by sponsoring an event. Engaging guest authors, exciting children's performers, interesting early literacy activities, creative art events, just to name a few have been held by the Library and sponsorships of such events are always greatly appreciated. Please contact the CEO/Chief Librarian for more details.
