Deep River Public Library

Get involved with the Library

The foreground features two light teal armchairs and a royal blue beanbag chair in an inviting reading area. The wall is lined with waist high wooden bookshelves containing picture books. A metal rack sits atop of the bookshelf and holds childrens music CDs. A small plant sits next to the CD rack and colourful bunting hangs against the white wall.

Friends of the Library

Friends of the Library focus on fundraising projects for special items for the library. Ongoing projects include the semi-annual book sales, weekly bridge sessions and bridge lessons.

The Friends meet monthly at the library to review progress and to discuss new ideas.

Please contact Ellen Sills at if you would like to help out with the Friends of the Library or for more information. We are always happy to have new members. All types of ideas and levels of assistance are welcome.

The work of over one hundred volunteers helps us provide extended services to the community. They assist staff by checking materials in and out, mending books, processing new books, shelving books, gardening and organizing fundraising.

Donating materials

Book donations are again welcome! We are particularly interested in books from the last ten years in good condition. We are unable to accept encyclopedias, textbooks, and damaged or musty books. Donations of puzzles are also welcome for our rotating collection by the elevator. All donations may be dropped off during open hours.

All donated materials become the property of the library and will be added, discarded, or sold at the library’s discretion. 

Thank you for your support!
