Make a Financial Donation

The McBride Library is funded by your taxes, through annual grants from the Regional District and the BC Government, and special program grants. Your financial donation enables us to go further, to purchase new resources, offer more programs, and broaden our services to best meet our community’s needs.

The Library is a registered charity and will give an income tax receipt for all donations over $20. We do not issue tax receipts for the donation of library materials.

You can donate in person, by visiting us at 521 Main Street, by mail, or online. Please make your cheque payable to The McBride & District Public Library. Our mailing address is PO Box 489, McBride, B.C. V0J 2E0.

Donate online through PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account if you have a major credit card. All transactions are instant and secure.

Donate Materials

We appreciate the donation of books and other library materials. Our librarians will consider adding each donation to the Library’s own collection. If we don’t add it to our shelves, we will offer the materials for sale by donation. The funds raised from our used book sales help us continue to offer excellent reading material and deliver our core programs. You can browse the used book sales area whenever the Library is open.

We do not accept for deposit materials which are not outright gifts.


Support the Library with a McBride Library Bag!

We are selling jute shopper bags with the McBride Library logo. These sturdy bags are perfect for carrying your library books! Available while supplies last, at the cost of $15 each. We also have a small selection of new books for sale inside the library, from recipe books to local poetry collections.


Take Part in a Fundraiser

Since planning for our expansion, the Library and Museum have hosted several fundraising events each year. These events would not be possible without the generous donation of supplies and hours of hard (but fun) work of our many dedicated volunteers. If you would like to contribute to one of our fundraising events, or have an idea of your own, please let us know. We’d be happy to hear from you!
