Support Your Library: donation and volunteer opportunities

Public Libraries have the power to change lives.  The Hanover Public Library has played a key role in our community since 1906. We connect people to a world of information and learning.  By making a donation today you can help us create a lasting legacy.  Your gift will help the Library serve the community above and beyond what tax-based funding provides.

In Memoriam Donations

Honour a life well lived by giving an In Memoriam donation. Increasingly, in lieu of flowers, many people prefer to make a donation to a not-for-profit organization as a tangible and permanent way to pay tribute. An In Memoriam donation to the Hanover Public Library is a meaningful way to pay tribute to the memory of someone who cared about their community.

Bequests and Planned Giving

Bequests and planned gifts are an excellent way to leave a legacy of support for the Hanover Public Library, assuring our ability to provide quality programs for future generations. Your contribution will touch lives for many years to come.
There are a variety of ways to make a planned gift to the Library. The simplest one is to name The Hanover Public Library as a beneficiary in your will or living trust. If you would like to discuss a gift intention, Hanover Library staff would be happy to review your needs and intentions.

An easy way to support the library and get something nice for yourself.  Choose a title from our list of upcoming book releases, when the book arrives you donate the cost to the library.  Both adult and children’s collections can benefit from material adoption. You get a tax receipt for the full amount of your donation and you will be the first to read the book. Your generosity can be acknowledged,  if you wish, by having a bookplate in the book so that everyone knows of your gift.
Donate Books & Materials

Donated items may be added to our collection or may be sold at the Annual Booksale in June. All money raised helps fund our Library programs and services.  We accept used books, DVDs, puzzles, games, or CDs to the sale.  Please review the donation guidelines for more information.  Small numbers of donations may be dropped off at any time. Please contact the Library at 519.364.1420 or hanpub@hanover.ca for information about donating large amounts of materials.

Volunteering at the Library

Computer Buddies
Computer Buddies pairs adults who need help using new technology with teens who need volunteer experience. The Buddies can offer help with basic computer stills orIMG_3030 devices such as eReaders, tablets, and smart phones and web applications such as Facebook, e-mail and Twitter.  This is a wonderful program for both teens and adults: it will give teens the opportunity to ‘be the teacher’, and give adults skills that will enrich their lives. If you would like to become a Computer Buddy tutor, please call or visit the library.
