 Only one week remains for the Gibsons & District Library Foundation’s Giving Tree Fundraiser.

The Gibsons & District Library Foundation’s first fundraising initiative in almost a decade is rapidly coming to a close.  The May 31st deadline is right around the corner and there’s still considerable effort required.  To date over $4500 has been raised but we’re in the final push to achieve our goal of $6500.

The long overdue state-of–the-art multimedia presentation system needed at the Gibsons & District Public Library is within reach. But achieving the goal requires the support of as many patrons of the library as possible. The new system will not only support ongoing digital literacy programs, it will also enhance the library’s ability to provide the best possible presentations, readings and audience participation experiences for its patrons of all ages.

The new system will include everything required for a professional, portable system including:

– 1080p resolution Projector
– 10” Compact Speakers
– Wireless Microphone system
– Portable 16:9 Projector Screen
– Multimedia Laptop

Donations can be made by cash or cheque at the library’s circulation desk.  To donate online go to www.gibsonslibraryfoundation.ca which will redirect you to our donation webpage at CanadaHelps.org.

A big thank you to all who have so generously donated already.  And, to those who haven’t yet, no donation is too small, but more importantly, none is too large!

If you have any questions email the Foundation at gdpl-foundation@gibsons.bclibrary.ca or ask a member of the library staff.

Our Mission

The Gibsons & District Library Foundation was established in November 2001 to provide financial security to the Library, above and beyond government core funding, through the support of individuals and the other organizations. The Gibsons Library Foundation will facilitate and promote educational programs by the provision of enhanced facilities, materials and equipment, encourage community outreach programs for those currently not able to use the Library and receive gifts, bequests, funds and property to hold, invest, administer and distribute for the purposes of the Foundation.
