The Village of Carbon Public Library welcomes gifts of money and bequests to the library. Supporting your Library makes more resources available to the community. Gifts to the Village of Carbon Public Library are tax deductible; the Village of Carbon Library Board is a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency.

Monetary Donations

Donations of money will be acknowledged and placed in a bank account for Library use. The library welcomes charitable bequests in wills and donations of life insurance or securities. You can also recognize a loved one by recognizing a special occasion such as a birthday or wedding anniversary or by giving a gift in memory of a family member, friend, or colleague. Tax receipts will be issued for donations with a value of $20.00 and above.

Donations of Materials

All donated materials are reviewed according to the same selection criteria applied to purchased materials. This means that donations will not necessarily be added to the collection. Donations valued at $20.00 or more by the staff are eligible for a tax receipt. The library reserves the right to dispose of gifts not added to its collection. Items not added to the collection may be sold for the benefit of the library.

Tax receipts can be issued by the Library Manager and Assistant Library Manager.
