Fundraising update

Our libraries strengthen and connect our communities every day. Not only does our library provide books and DVDs, but we also offer a wide array of children's programming, connecting parents, enriching children's lives and promoting literacy. We also offer innovative adult programs that assist patrons with new technology, engage with new activities and promote lifelong learning. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the Selwyn Public Library has continued to provide these services in a modified way.

Some of our programming is made possible by the ongoing efforts of volunteers at our New-to-You stores, but with the required intermittent closures of these stores and our inability to hold our annual book sales, we need to find new, creative ways to raise the funds that support many of our enhanced programs and services. These include services such as virtual collections and resources (including Hoopla), adult and children’s programs, and community outreach initiatives such as the home library service, pop-up libraries, and our pollinator garden. Hoopla is an innovative digital media service that provides our library patrons with access to a wide-ranging virtual collection of eBooks and eAudiobooks, music, movies and TV shows.

We are asking for your support. We encourage patrons, local businesses and all people who love libraries to make a financial gift in support of Selwyn Public Library. Our library is a registered charity and tax receipts will be issued for all donations.

Our goal is to raise $10, 000 in 2021.

If you are grateful for our local libraries, please offer your financial support.
