Support PEPL

Libraries are important hubs for your community and there are many ways you can support your local library. Whether you choose to make a financial gift, volunteer your time or participate in a fundraising activity, your contributions help us to make a difference in our communities.

Donations and fundraising help fund projects that are not covered by your tax dollars and make a difference not only to every person who enters the library but the community as a whole. The Perth East Public Library accepts monetary gifts from individuals, services clubs, profit, and non-profit organizations as well as donated gifts-in-kind, to be used for the benefit of the community by enhancing the quality of Library services.

Monetary Donations

Financial donations help fund priority needs of the Library not covered by your tax dollars and make a difference for everyone coming through the doors of the library.  All donations of over $10 receive a charitable tax receipt. 

Planned Giving

Create a personal legacy that benefits your community forever. Your donation will help ensure that the library can continue to offer valuable services to the community for years to come. Mark special occasions, or celebrations of life with a donation to the library.
