Support Indigenous collections at the Library
In honour of the recently declared National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, the Perth and District Union Public Library and Lanark County Neighbours for Truth and Reconciliation are collaborating on a fundraising campaign to purchase books by and about Indigenous Peoples.
Launching September 28, the campaign’s goal is $1,500. A donation of $25 will cover the average cost of one book and if the campaign reaches its goal, the library will purchase 30 new books and create 10 classroom kits with three books each. Titles will be chosen from those recommended by Indigenous organizations and will be purchased through GoodMinds, an Indigenous-owned bookseller based in the Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation.
Donations to the campaign can be made online the form below or with cash or cheque at the library at 30 Herriott St, Perth, Ontario.
