Everyone has their own library story. Many give because they have fond childhood memories of taking home stacks of books from the library. Others donate because they believe the entire community benefits from a public library. Your donation can help the library in three distinct areas that are explained below.

GVPL Vibrant Library Spaces

A library is much more than a place to check out a book; it is a community meeting space, a virtual office, a play zone and a destination for lifelong learning. Your donation helps us refresh and renew these busy spaces.

GVPL Exceptional Collections

We are a community of passionate readers, dedicated to lifelong learning. Your support helps us keep up with the growing demand for books, magazines, DVDs, digital collections and more.

GVPL Community-Inspired Programs and Services

Your support helps us expand our programs and services to instill a love of reading in kids, help people navigate the online world, welcome newcomers and support job seekers. There are lifelong learning opportunities for every age and every stage of life at the library.

Legacy Giving

Please send me information about how I can make a gift for future generations in my will by contacting me about:

Registered Charity

The Greater Victoria Public Library is a registered charity. Donors will receive a charitable tax receipt for all eligible donations in accordance with Canada Revenue Agency guidelines. Our charitable registration number is 11894 6979 RR0001.

Gifts to Honour Others

Many people choose to make a gift in honour, memory, or celebration of someone special. When you give $25 or more in memory or celebration of someone special, or in honour of an individual or group you will have the option to request that we send a hand-written card directly to them, designed by GVPL staff.
