From time to time, the Library accepts donations of gently used books. Please consult this document before contacting us or bringing any book donations to the library. Those books that are not selected to be added to the collection are added to our in-house book sale, which raises funds to purchase new books.


Volunteers play an important role at our library. The volunteer programme creates rewarding opportunities for individuals to perform a valuable service to the community. Our volunteer policy outlines the policies and procedures. For anyone interested in volunteering please submit an application to the library.

Support Sarah’s Corner

Sarah's Circle at NPLSarah’s Corner is the name we have given to the children’s area overlooking the river and garden. Sarah’s Circle is a pre-school program offered, free of charge, to parents, caregivers and their young children. It is designed to introduce young children to reading and libraries. Sarah’s Corner and Circle are named after Sarah Badgley, who died in an automobile accident in the summer of 2001.

Her parents Sue and Kerry requested that donations in her memory be given to the development of children’s programs at the Library. Make your donation online or contact Rachel Brown at 613-258-4711 for more information on how you can donate to Sarah’s Circle. The Badgleys are also hosts of our popular Saturday program Juice Jam.
