About the Library
Support Your Library
Our libraries enrich lives and communities through universal access to knowledge, lifelong learning, and literacy. They’re vital community destinations for knowledge, inspiration, innovation, and renewal.
Here are some examples of how your financial donation can help:
- $ 30 buys 1 hardcover book or 2 softcovers
- $ 50 buys 3 picture books for children
- $200 buys a Literacy Kit for children (15-20 items)
- $250 buys a Book Club set (12 books)
- $350 buys 10 Large Print books
- $1,800 buys a large screen TV and stand
Your donation to Vancouver Island Regional Library can make the difference between a good and a great public library system.
