Recycle your empty printer cartridges. They help us earn money!
We have enrolled in an Ink Cartridge Recycling program. It is an effortless way to raise money to support our projects and to protect our planet. We earn money simply by recycling used printer, fax and copier cartridges that were destined for the trash.
Most of the inkjet and laser printer cartridges used in our homes, our workplaces and businesses in our community have a high recycling value. We receive cash for every eligible cartridge we collect. Here's how you can help. Save the cartridges you use at home and bring them to the library. Ask others to help. Collect only eligible cartridges and keep up the momentum. When you make recycling a habit, we'll continue raising money with no effort. Pick up our flyer in the library for a list of eligible cartridges.
BABBLE "Buy a Book, Be a Library Enhancer"
This program will help to ensure that a varied collection of quality books is maintained for the educational and recreational use of the whole community. Through the BABBLE program you will ensure that your library will continue to offer a full complement of best-selling books. You can BABBLE books, magazine subscriptions, videos or CD ROMs. You may choose to donate to a specific area or a suggested subject area. The Staff will follow the Collection Development Policy in purchasing the book. Unfortunately, we may not be able to fill requests for specific titles, but will work with you to find a suitable title. Contributors will receive a charitable tax receipt. You will also have the privilege of being the first to borrow the book. With your consent, a distinctive book plate will be placed in each new book purchased. The minimum donation for the BABBLE program is $20.00.
Giant Book Sale : April 10 - 14, 2013
The Library’s prime fundraiser is the giant book sale held annually in late March or early April. This is truly a community event with contributions from volunteers who help set up for the book sale, work at the sale itself, donate items for the sale, and purchase items. Funds raised go to augment library resources and services such as author visits, prizes for the summer reading program, electronic resources, and library equipment.
If you have unwanted items that you would like to donate, please ensure that they meet the donation guidelines outlined below. If they do, please label them "Donations" and drop them off at the front desk of the library during hours of operation. Please do not put donations in the drop box in order to avoid overcrowding. If you have a large number of boxes to donate, please contact the library CEO at 905-642-READ, ext. 5223 to make arrangements.
We thank you very much for your support.
