Library will issue tax receipts

October is Canadian Library Month, stop in and check out a new book!

Did you know when you donate to the Midway Public Library, 100 per cent of your gift goes directly to supporting the library? As a registered charity, we can issue tax receipts for donations exceeding $20. Due to decreased funding, we rely on the generosity of our community to help with things like hiring students in the summer, purchasing new books, upgrading computer systems and offering programs for children and adults here at the library.

There are also bigger projects awaiting funding. We have a full basement that is currently unfinished. Our dream is to turn it into a usable functional space and with donations and grants, this can one day be achieved.

We’re fortunate to live in such a generous and community-minded area, the library has been built from the ground up by hardworking and dedicated volunteers and without that, an important part of our community and area would be missing. When you support the Midway Public Library, you are ensuring that future generations will always have a place to go to learn, explore and discover the knowledge held within these walls.

October is Canadian Library Month, stop in and check out a new book! On Oct. 14 at 1 p.m. at the Midway Public Library, there will be an information meeting for an upcoming book club. Everyone welcome!

Thank you to Avi Silberstein for joining us Sept. 19, for a discussion about his book Human Solutions. I highly recommend it and we have two copies available at the library, thanks in part to Pat Kelly so kindly donating his copy. Thank you Pat!

On Oct. 25, Midway Public Library and Mc- Mynn’s Family Foods will be hosting a Pumpkin Patch Party for children in the Boundary! Stay tuned for more details on our Facebook page and at McMynn’s.
