BUY A HEART?
We at BUPL are honoured to serve our communities with dignity, freedom of information, and accessibility. We strive to bring you quality materials, programs, and services you can rely on.
We're continuing our Buy a Heart fundraiser throughout the month of November with hopes to generate more donations (2020 has been rough!). You can purchase and sign your name on a paper heart in $2, $5, or $10 denominations, with donations over $50 earning a gold heart! We will add them to the Library Tree in the front entrance to showcase your love for BUPL.
As a token of our appreciation, you'll leave with a fancy I LOVE BUPL button and, while supplies last, a homemade journal donated by a gracious patron! (Tax receipts for donations over $20 can be provided).
A portion of the proceeds will benefit BUPL's youth club, too, which is resuming this month. Thank you all for your continued support of public libraries!
