Monetary donations

GPPL gratefully accepts financial donations, which help the Library grow its services and resources. There are several ways to provide financial support:

In-person:  Visit the Library and one of the staff at the Customer Services desk will be happy to accept your donation. Leave us your full name and address and we will mail you a tax-deductible receipt for any donation for $10.00 or more.

By mail:  You can mail your cheque to GPPL at 101, 9839 103 Ave. Grande Prairie, AB T8V 6M7. Please include a note if you have any special instructions.

Online: We make it easy to give through our online, secure payment option. Please click here to donate immediately.

Books and other materials

We are pleased to accept gently used books and other materials which we will either add to our collection or make available to the public at our ongoing "Books for Sale" rack .

How to donate

Small numbers of donations (a bag or boxful) may be dropped off at the Customer Services desk in the Library.  To discuss larger donations, please contact Technical Services at (780) 357-7460.
