Donating Valuable Books

Tax receipts can be issued for the donation of books of significant value. Such donations must be made through the Chief Librarian.

Opportunities for individual giving

The Collection Fund - It's vital that the Elliot Lake Public Library stay current with today's fast-paced and ever-changing world of information. But over the past few years, the cost of books and materials has risen by over 65 percent. That's why funding for library collections is so important.

Your generous donation will help buy much needed books and materials for adults, children, and special needs customers

You may choose to direct your donation to:

  • where it's needed most
  • purchase a subscription to a periodical/journal
  • purchase new books and materials
  • purchase new videos and CDs
  • purchase Special Needs materials, such as large print or talking books
  • purchase children's books and materials and
  • sponsor a specialized collection, such as a selection of parenting or career books

The Capital/Building Fund - Donations can be made to the library's Capital/Building Fund. These funds are designated for the purchase of furniture, equipment and/or building improvements.

Bequests - We urge you to consider the library as a recipient of a charitable gift in your will. It is a lasting expression of your support of libraries and your donation will help us continue to provide library services to residents of all ages.
