While public funding makes it possible for the Cranbrook Public Library to open its door, it thrives because people love it.
Each year, people make generous donations that make it possible for the Library to acquire more collection items, enhance programs, and refresh furnishings.
The donation, called capital, is invested through the Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies. Each year, the Library receives the growth revenue that the capital earns. The capital never gets touched so it continues to grow year after year. As the value of the capital in the endowment fund grows, so does the amount of growth revenue that the Library receives.
This revenue provides stable, ongoing funding the Library can use to create innovative programs and services that will help meet our community’s changing informational and recreational needs well into the future. Make a contribution today!
