The Clarence-Rockland Public Library encourages gifts of money and bequests to the Library.
Financial donations can be made online via the Canada Helps website.
The Library is a registered charity under the Canadian Income Tax Act. Individuals and groups may thus receive income tax benefits for financial contributions. These contributions will be used for Library materials, programming or equipment. If the donor wishes to specify the use to which money is to be put, arrangements may be made with the CEO.
Donating Books & Audio-Visual Materials
The Library will accept gifts of print and non-print materials which can be integrated into the existing collection and which fit within the criteria.
The Library reserves the right to dispose of gifts not added to its collection. The Library does not evaluate materials for tax receipt purposes. Classification, shelving, access and location will be determined by the Library.

- Books that have been published in the last four years, and are in excellent condition;
- Recent bestsellers;
- Classics that are in excellent condition;
- Foreign language books;

The donation of a large number of books must be coordinated with the CEO, ahead of time. The Library will not pick up any book donations.
