Friends of the South Mountain Library give back


The Friends of the South Mountain Library have donated $1100 to the SD&G County Library. Earmarked specifically for collections, this money will go towards book purchases that will benefit the entire SD&G County Library system. 

“The Friends of the South Mountain Library are very pleased to partner with the SD&G Library on behalf of our community to enhance the collection and support local authors”, said Shelley Lyall, Chair of the Friends. 

The Friends of the South Mountain Library is a registered charity dedicated to the enhancement of Library services, increasing community awareness of Library services and working with other community organizations. The Friends regularly fundraise in support of the Library through memberships, donations, and special events including an annual Canada Day Used Book Sale at the Agricultural Hall, the Fall Book Sale at Mountain Orchards, the Gingerbread Workshop every December and various Trivia Challenge Nights at Sandy Row Golf Club.

Each book purchased with this money will be recognized with an inscribed silver bookplate. “We’re pleased to be able to appropriately recognize this contribution to our Library collections”, said Karen Franklin. “We are very grateful to our community members for their generous gift”. 

All monetary donations to the Library are used to further the mission and purposes of the Library, and may be designated for specific collections, equipment, furniture or Library programs. 

Donations over $500 are recognized at bronze, silver, and gold levels. 

If you would like to make a donation to the SD&G County Library, please contact your local branch or call 613-936-8777.
