BOOK DONATION CENTRE NOW OPEN!

The Friends of Invermere Public Library are now accepting gently used books at the new Book Donation Centre. The building is in the parking lot across the street from the new library, just south of the Invermere Court House (645 4th Street).  There is drive up access and a large book donation box by the entrance. If you are not sure about the location, check with library staff. For large numbers of books, please arrange access to the Book Donation Centre with either a member of the Friends or with library staff. The Friends of the Library thank you for supporting our library.

Please note: the Friends do not accept text books, Reader’s Digest, or encyclopaedias.
