Cash Donations

  • Grand County Library District welcomes and appreciates cash, check, and credit card donations! Grand County Library District reserves the right to use all donations in support of the district's mission statement, vision, and goals. However, if you would like to designate your donation to a specific cause or purpose, please download and fill out the donation form below. Follow the directions on the form to ensure your donation is allocated to the district purpose of your choosing.

Donor Wall Tiles

  • The personalized wall tiles project was originally created to recognize donors who contributed to our building projects. Because of continued interest, we are offering remaining tiles to those who wish to sponsor a tile. All funds generated from new tiles will be used for facility improvements. Tiles are available at the Fraser Valley Library and the Granby Library.
  • For more information, please contact the executive director at adminoffice@gcld.org or call 970-887-9411.

Volunteer

Our volunteers make a real difference to the library and to our patrons. As a volunteer you will have the satisfaction of knowing you are providing a much-needed, much-valued service to our community. As with our employees, all volunteers will undergo a background check and formal interview. You can complete the application (we use the same form for volunteering & employment) and submit it to the branch in which you would like to volunteer for.
