Books are essential. For the Library to achieve its mission of helping everyone read we need to be able to buy enough books to meet community demand. We need your help. We’re asking you to please donate to our annual Share A Book fundraising campaign.
Your quarters, loonies, toonies, $5, $10, or more, will all add up to books on your Library’s shelves for everyone to read and share. Please visit your local Library to drop off your donation, or mail a cheque, payable to Eastern Counties Regional Library to P.O. Bag 2500, 390 Murray Street, Mulgrave NS B0E 2G0. Tax receipts will be issued for donations over $10 if you fill out a donor card which can be found online or at your local branch, or include your address with your donation.
