Lois Hole Library Legacy Program: Grow Your Library

Lois Hole, Alberta's 15th Lieutenant Governor, was an avid supporter of libraries and of the contribution they make to learning, literacy, personal development and recreation.

From her spirit and passion comes this invitation to honour someone you know through a program to help build and strengthen our public library resource.
When you donate through the Lois Hole Library Legacy Program, Strathcona County Library will purchase a new book in your name. You will receive:

A tax receipt for your gift;
A bookplate affixed to the volume in your own, or your honoree's, name;
The appreciation of everyone else who enjoys the title thanks to your generosity!

An acknowledgement will be sent to those in whose honour a donation is made, or - in the case of memorial donations - to their families. For more information about this program through Strathcona County Library, please ask at one of our Service Desks for a brochure.

Library Funding Facts

Alberta Public Libraries

Most of the funding for public libraries in Alberta comes from their own communities through municipal taxes. Because public libraries share their resources and cooperate in providing materials and services to support all Albertans, the Province also contributes. Libraries supplement this core service funding by selling library cards, collecting fines and fees for late materials, and by applying for project grants. Many libraries also work with a non-profit Library Friends group that can advocate and raise funds on the library's behalf. Most, if not all, of the funds raised by public libraries goes toward equipment, books, materials, or services that directly benefit the public.
