Lois Hole Legacy Program

In honour of the late Lieutenant Governor, Lois Hole, the Lois Hole Library Legacy Program was created to help build the collections in Alberta's libraries. The Legacy Program allows for a donation in the donor's own name, or to honour a friend, family member or organization.

Please call Rachelle Kuzyk at 780-361-4446 for more information.

Adopt-a-Magazine

Donate Library Materials

The Wetaskiwin Public Library may accept donations of library materials, such as books and DVDs, provided they meet our donation policy. All donations are subject to the approval of the library manager or staff. Donated materials become the property of the library and may be used or disposed of as deemed appropriate.

Please refer to the guidelines below for a listing of what materials are deemed acceptable. If you have any questions please contact the library.

Donation Guidelines

Due to the overwhelming volume of used book donations the library receives, we cannot accept:

  • Harlequin/Silhouette Romances
  • Magazines
  • Textbooks
  • Encyclopedias
  • Condensed or abridged books such as Reader's Digest
  • Books that are more than 7 years old

The library accepts books that are:

  • Popular
  • Recently published
  • Hard-cover or paperback
  • Published within the last 5 years
  • In good condition

Donating books that are damaged, moldy, or very old costs the library staff time and storage space. Please consider recycling or disposing of these items.

Donated items that are not added to the library's collection will be saved for future book sales. Learn more about our book sales.
