Tuesday, December 3 is National Giving Day!

Tuesday December 3rd is National Giving Day. Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday – but now Canada has introduced Giving Tuesday!

“It is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.” –

Giving comes in many different ways, shapes and sizes from making a financial contribution to volunteering. Here at BPL we are so thankful for the public’s continued generosity and support. Join us in celebrating Giving Tuesday by making a donation to your Barrie Public Library online via our CanadaHelps account or stop by the Circulation Desk at our Downtown or Painswick branch.

Thank you!
