Bruce County Public Library (BCPL) would like to thank Bruce Power for a recent $15,000 donation toward their Bookmobile campaign, said an April 8 media release from Bruce County.

“Increasing access to the services of the Bruce County Public Library will be of great benefit to the residents of Bruce County,” said Dwight Irwin, Bruce Power’s Manager, Community & Media Relations. “We’re proud to support the library in its efforts to reach more of Bruce County’s residents.”

In 2014 Bruce County communities were surveyed about what they wanted to see from libraries. The response was clear, and services to smaller and remote communities were not just needed but wanted. The desire for a Bookmobile was reiterated in the 2021 Strategic Plan community survey. Studying the success in cities like Guelph and Toronto, Bruce County Public Library decided to start the Bookmobile campaign.

"Community support for this initiative has been outstanding," read the release. "From donations to press and interview requests, Bruce County residents are excited to see the Bookmobile come to life."

“Bruce County Public Library deeply appreciates the support from Bruce Power for our Bookmobile project," said Library Director Brooke Mclean. "This donation will make a real difference in the lives of children, families, and seniors throughout Bruce County by bringing books and digital resources to them.”

Library Board Chair Luke Charbonneau said the donation is an example of Bruce Power's community support.

Bruce County Public Library has moved into the planning and designing stages of the project. Staff is considering potential routes and service locations and determining what technology will best meet the needs of residents.
