Share the joy of reading this Giving Tuesday with a gift to the Richmond Public Library.

In this time of COVID-19, the library serves as an important service for those seeking knowledge as well as relief from the pandemic.

Since March, the library has offered some 1,400 online programs to over 50,000 participants. From filling 35,000 holds requests during the library’s Curbside Holds Pickup service from May to August to receiving and answering over 10,000 questions via phone and email, the library will continue to stay connected with Richmond residents during these difficult times. Financial donations are gratefully accepted and help make our collections, technology, programs, and community events even better and more accessible for all. 

Richmond Public Library invites you to follow it on social media at https://www.facebook.com/yourlibraryRichmond/ and give the gift of literacy this Dec. 1 at https://www.yourlibrary.ca/giving-tuesday/. Giving Tuesday is a global movement that utilizes social media to encourage individuals to donate to their favourite charities during the holiday giving season. You can change lives—even the smallest amount counts—with your generosity. Every donation over $10 will be eligible for a tax receipt.
