Donate and Give

Innisfil ideaLAB & Library is a dynamic community hub. Through no- and low-cost programs, activities and supports for young children, families and seniors the Library provides opportunities to build and improve literacy, technological skills, and creativity. Public funding supports libraries, but often it is private gifts that make them thrive.

The Innisfil ideaLAB & Library is supported by municipal tax dollars, but in order for us to do more to meet the needs of our community we need your help.

A visit to the Innisfil ideaLAB & Library opens more than doors to the imagination – and with your support the Library can connect the community with additional resources for learning, entertainment, and opportunity. More than that, your donation is a sound investment: our Library plays a crucial role in fostering both economic and social growth in Innisfil.

Donations to the Innisfil ideaLAB & Library Fund support incredible projects and opportunities for our community above and beyond regular library programs.

  • More special events like movies under the stars at Fresh Air Flicks;
  • More free craft and activity kits for seniors to keep them healthy and engaged;
  • More literacy supports like the annual Short Story Contest where children  receive writing tips from some of their favourite published authors and build confidence through creative writing;
  • More special guests like authors, artists, makers and speakers.

Every donation to the Innisfil ideaLAB & Library Fund creates opportunities for community, connection, and skill-building. Each donation to the Library is an investment in the future of our community. 

Better Libraries. Better Communities. Better World.

How Your Donation Helps

Did you know that Seniors HackLAB Kits bring the HackLAB home to hundreds of isolated and vulnerable seniors each month? With a $100 donation, you can support free HackLAB Kits for one senior for one year. These kits, available free of charge, are extremely popular and can be adapted to accommodate the unique needs of individuals. Each month the Library provides 100-150 free kits to Innisfil’s older adults. With your support, we can continue this program that keeps our seniors active, creative and engaged.
