As a non-profit society, we rely heavily upon local, and to a lesser degree, on provincial and federal government funding, but we don’t always received the grants we need to meet basic operating costs.
Your donations are essential. We use your generous donations to buy new material to improve the collections you enjoy, music or large print, for example, and to help pay for programs for children, teens, and seniors.
We encourage you to click on the donate button which will direct you to a secure website where you can offer your support. You will received a charitable receipt from Canadahelps.org on our behalf. If you donate directly to your Library by cheque by dropping into the office during office hours, we are happy to provide charitable receipts for all donations $20 and greater.
Theatre seat plaques - here's your chance to donate to our theatre renovation fund and go down in history as a supporter of accessible public meeting spaces. Purchase a name plaque on one of our new theatre seats for yourself, your business, or in memory of loved one.
We are also happy to receive donations of popular books, music or dvds in good condition. The best of the donated material is added to our collection and the Friends of the Medicine Hat Public Library sells the rest to raise money for library materials and programming. Just drop your good quality used books, music or dvds off at one of the service desks and let the staff member know you’re donating them.
Thank you for thinking of your library!
