Monetary Donations

Thanks to generous donations, we have built our libraries collection. In lieu of books, a monetary donation will be graciously accepted. Cheques can be made out to Slave Lake Regional Library Board.  Monetary donations of over $500 will be recognized on the Donor Recognition Wall.

Charitable tax receipts will only be issued for monetary gifts of $20.00 or more.

Please see our sponsorship policy.

We are looking for patrons who would like to support the Library by donating to the Slave Lake Municipal Library Fund. Donations to the Slave Lake Municipal Library Fund will be held in perpetuity with disbursements made annually to fund the Slave Lake Library's collection.

Donating is easy:  Simply click on the picture below and it will take you to the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta. Then identify the Slave Lake Municipal Library Fund as the fund you wish to donate.
