Donate to The Library
Public funding supports libraries, but often it is private gifts that make them flourish.
The Quinte West Public Library is supported largely by municipal tax dollars, but in order for us to do more to meet the needs of our community we need your help.
Our Charitable Registration # is 11926 8878 RR 0001.
Ways to Donate
We thank and appreciate the generosity of our donors. Your support helps ensure our long-term financial stability. We recommend that you discuss any gifts with your professional advisors in order to make an informed decision.

please note that 3.75% of your donation stays with Canada Helps. However, this is still a saving for the Library versus paying credit card fees. Thank you for your generosity.
Unexpected gifts to Quinte West Public Library are always appreciated but a well-planned gift can often be more effective, for both you the donor and for the Library. A planned gift is a charitable gift that you plan for now, but is not received by the Library until later.
Most often, planned gifts are made in the form of a bequest through a will. You can set aside a specific dollar amount, leave a percentage of your estate, or leave any assets left over after you have provided for your family.
Traditionally when a friend or loved one passes on, flowers are sent to the family of the deceased. In lieu of flowers, many people prefer to make a donation to a not-for-profit organization as a permanent way to pay tribute. An In Memoriam donation to the Quinte West Public Library is a meaningful way to pay tribute to the memory of someone who cared about their community.
When we receive In Memoriam donations, we respond to each donor personally. We also send a letter to the next of kin, keeping them up-to-date with all donations that have been made in memory of their loved one.
Note: The Library is not currently accepting donations. This note will be removed when we are able to resume accepting donated materials.
