Burnaby Public Library is a registered charity and donors receive a charitable tax receipt for all donations. Gifts may take the form of cash donations, bequests, naming the library as beneficiary of a life insurance policy, or gifts of real property.

Donations of books and other materials

Burnaby Public Library accepts donations of books and other library materials.

Donations are accepted in person at the information desk of your local Burnaby Public Library branch. We accept only items in excellent condition (no loose bindings, marked pages or water damage) and of current interest. Due to space limitations, we can accept a maximum of two shopping bags (up to 20 lbs) of donations at one time. We don't add donated material to our collections, but the funds generated from the sale of these materials are used to enhance BPL collections and services.

Once recieved, donated materials are the exclusive property of Burnaby Public Library.
