Community Partners

All it takes is one word, one book, one article to make a difference in the life of a child, a teen or an adult!

Last year, Community Partner donations from 375+ library supporters totalled over $35,000.  These funds purchased hundreds and hundreds of new and wonderful materials for the education and enjoyment of the whole community.

Memorial Donations

The Thunder Bay Public Library established a formalized Memorial Program in 1996.  Donors to this fund have chosen to make donations to the Library in memory of friends or relatives who were loyal library users or who simply loved books or reading.

The Library uses memorial donations, along with other individual donations, to add books and other materials to the collection.  Memorial donations are acknowledged by recognition inside books or other materials.  There are also plaques at the Brodie and Waverley Libraries.  These plaques will be replaced in 2021 with an electronic board which will be at all library locations  (These Boards are out-of-date because we have run out of room to place more names and we apologize for this and are working to rectify the situation).

Should you wish to recognize a friend or loved one through a memorial donation, pick up a memorial fund envelope at any Community Hub of the Thunder Bay Public Library.  You may also choose to make a secure on-line donation by clicking on the Donate Now button.
