Cape Breton Regional Library

Library Legacy Book Fund

The Library Legacy Book Fund is designed to help provide the library with a continued supply of resources into the future. The Book Fund is a unique way for an individual or organization to make a lasting contribution to their community; to help ensure that generations to come will have new library resources; and to get benefit today for your donation through a charitable tax receipt.

With your gift of $500, the library will purchase one new book, in your or your organization’s name, each year. You can choose from a list of subject areas that include adult and children’s fiction; picture books for pre-schoolers; history; nature; environment; biographies; arts and crafts; and business. You can also designate the Cape Breton Regional Library branch where you want your books to be housed.

A bookplate acknowledging your gift is placed in the front of each book. Through the Library Legacy Fund, donors can provide a lasting legacy to the library and the community. For more information on this or any other gifts, contact us at:
