Donations of Money:

Donations greater than $20 are eligible for CRA tax receipt. Donations can be made to the library in the form of cash, cheque, debit transaction or money order indicating the "Westlock Municipal Library" as recipient.

Donors may specify if their gist should be allocated towards Operations, Capital Projects, or Memorial in honour of a loved one: Donations given in memory of an individual will have an "in memory" plate or sticker placed in the purchased item. If donors do not specify the library will allocate donation money according to greatest need.

Bottle Donations:

Westlock Libraries accept donations of recyclable beverage containers (bottles, cans, milk jugs, etc.) as an initiative to generate revenue to purchase library materials and equipment. Recyclables may be deposited in the "Bottles for Books" bin by the front door of the library.
