In Memoriam

In Memoriam

Traditionally when a friend or loved one passes on people often send flowers to the family of the deceased to show respect, to demonstrate that they share their loss, and to celebrate a life well-lived. Increasingly, in lieu of flowers, many people prefer to make a donation to a not-for-profit organization as a tangible and permanent way to pay tribute. An In Memoriam donation to the Barrie Public Library is a meaningful way to pay tribute to the memory of someone who cared about their community.

When In Memoriam donations are made to the Barrie Public Library, we respond to each donor personally. As well, a letter is sent to the next of kin, keeping them up-to-date with all donations that have been made in memory of their loved one.

If you would like to make a donation in memory of a loved one please contact the Library's Development Office at 705-728-1010 ext: 7137, or by e-mail at
