Donations over $1000 will be formally recognized through a letter from the Library Board and a post online with permission.
Donate to the Food Pantry
East Gwillimbury Public Library is hosting a Food Pantry for those in need. You can find more information about donating on the Food Pantry page.
Donate to a Specific Collection
When you donate, you have the option of selecting the type of item you would like your donation to support. This is a monetary donation for a library collection such as children’s books, teen books, loanable technology, or our other collections.
After a donation is made a name plate will be added to the material your donation was put towards. To make a donation to a specific collection please specify the collection you would like to donate to in the notes section of either our online form or in-person/mail-in donation form.
East Gwillimbury Public Library will accept donations of well kept books for our book sales. Currently, due to space limitations the Library is only accepting titles within 5 years of their publishing date.
To donate, simply bring any well-maintained books to the front desk at either of our branches. If you are bringing a larger donation, please bring it to our Holland Landing Branch, and notify them in advance to ensure we are able to accept the donation.
In Memoriam Donations
When a loved one passes away, donating to the library can be a unique way to honour them by supporting the community.
Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Library is a non-profit organization that supports library enhancements. To learn about becoming a member or making a donation, please visit the Friends of the Library page of our website.
The Library Quilts
You may donate to add your name or the name of a loved one to either of our branches’ quilts. The cost to register a “Book Spine” is $50. Please email [email protected] for more information.
