YOUR PUBLIC LIBRARY...
MAKE A DONATION
Your gift to us
Please consider a donation to your public library. Your gift, large or small, will help us buy new books and other materials, thereby enhancing our community's quality of life.
The Elliot Lake Public Library gratefully accepts donations of books. Library books sometimes do not have an easy life, so donated books must be in excellent condition to stand up to the handling they receive.
If you have a large number of books you would like to donate, please call ahead to see if we can handle the donation on any particular day.
Once donated books are given to the Elliot Lake Public Library, it is up to the discretion of the Library as to which items will be put into circulation. The Library will take into account the demand for the item, the number of copies already in the collection, and the age or relevance of the book. If an item is not suitable for the Library's collection, it may be added to a book sale. All proceeds from the sale support the purchase of new books and materials for the Library's collections.
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:
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.
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.
