Giving Tuesday Request

This Giving Tuesday, support information, education, creativity and discovery – support your local library!

On Tuesday, November 29th, 2022, we invite our community to give back by donating to the Petawawa Public Library. We aspire to enhance learning, to inspire discovery and to foster connections through positive, informative, and accessible tools. We’ve been able to provide our patrons with quality and accessible programs free of charge, pilot a fine-free project for borrowing, and continue to grow our literary collections. With the support of our community, we can increase our impact even more!

How to give:

Donating online is easy. Just link directly to the Library’s page on the Canada Helps website. From there, you can direct your donation to Library programming, or to the Library in general. Either way your funds will be put to good use. Choose to make a one-time gift, or donate monthly.

Our charitable registration number is 886487503RR0001.

**All donations made through our online donation form up until November 29th will automatically be registered in a draw for a $5000 gift card via Canada Helps.

What is Giving Tuesday?

After getting your Black Friday Deals and Cyber Monday bargains , Giving Tuesday is a time to give back to your community. Originating in 2012, Giving Tuesday aims for one common goal; encouraging people to do good. The idea caught on and grew over the years, inspiring millions to give back and collaborate with their communities.

The history of the Petawawa Public Library can be traced back to 1973 when what is now known as the Town of Petawawa consisted of two separate municipalities: the Village of Petawawa and the Township of Petawawa. In 1997, with the amalgamation of the Township and Village, the new Town of Petawawa became home to the “Petawawa Public Library”. Today, the Petawawa Public Library continues to grow. It employs full-time and part-time staff and continues to rely on the help of loyal volunteers to serve over 7000 active members.
