Support Your Library


BIG NEWS!!!!  All people and businesses who donate to the library before October 31 will receive an exclusive Sneak-a-peek open house invitation to view the new library prior to opening! 


"A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft, and a festival.  They are cathedrals of the mind, hospitals of the soul, and theme parks of the imagination." - Caitlin Moran

Help us build the library you deserve by donating today! 

Your Future Library! 

The library has a small dedicated budget to help with furnishings, but it is not enough to give you the library that you deserve. We want to build the love of reading in your child by providing them a fun and educational space to learn. With new children’s shelves and fun furniture, you will see your child’s eyes light up with excitement as they walk into the library! Picture the soft light of a fireplace as you sit with your friends, drinking tea or coffee from our beverage station, and talking about your new favourite book! Or imagine a new trendy teen zone, where your teen will have a safe space to relax, visit with friends, or work on homework. Last, picture a large meeting room with a small kitchenette to host your child’s next birthday party or group meeting.

With your support, these dreams can become realities and we can make the library a beautiful, viable, and welcoming space for you and your family.
