Literacy Legacy Fund

$10-50,000 and over (suggested donation)

The fund generates revenue via interest from donated money to purchase new books and library material for the library every year in perpetuity.

More Info

Western Counties Regional Library Literacy Legacy Fund is being managed by a certified fund manager hired by the library board.

Every book purchased with the money will have a name plate noting the fund placed inside the front cover or on the digital listing in our catalogue (if possible).

Large donors, $5,000 or more, can decide what type of book/library material that their contribution would be used to purchase with a specialized nameplate.

Monthly giving can be set up to allow people to donate over an extended period of time.

The initial goal was $100,000 (surpassed in 2020) with the hope of building it up to $1 million.

More information on the fund is available in this downloadable brochure.

Special Features

Today’s library is not only about books. It is an extended community – a place to connect and socialize. Many users spend their time building with LEGO®, watching movies, and playing with puppets. We also offer a wide range of programs from birth to older adults. We welcome program sponsors and program donations.

Special Campaigns

$10 to 100 (suggested donation)

Special campaigns include the library’s biennial Adopt-A-Book campaign. Running every two years, people can “adopt” books from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30, 2022 to put on library shelves. Find out more about the campaign here.
