Make a monetary donation

You can make monetary donations online through Canada Helps or in person by cheque or debit/credit. Please contact / 613-258-4711 for more information. We thank you!

Make an item donation

The Library occasionally accepts donations of gently used books, DVDs and puzzles. Please contact Kelvin Lee at or 613-258-4711 to speak about donations before bringing anything to the Library and consult this document about what items are acceptable for donation. Items 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.

Volunteer opportunities can be rewarding and provide a valuable service to the community. Please visit our Volunteer page for more information on how to volunteer and current volunteer opportunities.
School Partnerships

We are so thankful to the Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario (CEPEO) and the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) for partnering with us to build a better French collection and more French programming for children and youth, in support of our growing Francophone community in North Grenville. Merci !

Room to Read Campaign

We continue to honour the many generous community members who contributed to the building of the new Kemptville Norenberg Branch of the Library. Your generosity made it all possible. See our Donor Book.

Sam’s Book Collection

Sam Tobias was a young child from Kemptville, who had a love for fishing and enjoyed visiting the North Grenville Public Library, especially Sarah’s Circle with Library Sue. Sam is remembered dearly by the community and an annual fishing derby is held in his memory to raise funds for “Sam’s Book Collection”. Through his collection, his love of books lives on. Donations are gratefully accepted; whether by cheque or via the NGPL’s CanadaHelps page, please note that your donation is for “Sam’s Collection” Fund.

Sarah’s Corner and Circle

Image of Sarah Badgley

Sarah’s Corner and Circle are named after Sarah Badgley, in her precious memory. Sarah’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 parents, Sue and Kerry, request that donations in her memory be given for the development of children’s programs at the Library. The Badgleys are also hosts of our popular Saturday program, Juice Jam. Make your donation by cheque or through the NGPL’s CanadaHelps page, and please note that your donation is for “Sarah’s Circle” Fund.
