Brampton Library's mission is to build an inclusive community by inspiring learning, literacy, and social cohesion. Your generosity, in any amount, will enable us to go above and beyond the services we currently provide. Thank you for choosing to support Brampton Library.
Together we can “bridge the digital divide”
While the term digital divide was coined nearly 20 years ago, the need to bridge and make technology accessible for all members of our community has never been greater.
Prior to the pandemic, Brampton Library computer workstations and chromebooks were borrowed approximately 8,700 times in a typical week. Residents in large numbers continue to come into our branches on a routine basis to use our Wi-fi.
Brampton Library’s objective is to create equitable opportunities for all, to be innovative and creative, and to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to discover their full potential by fostering literacy, inspiring learning, and building community.
Here’s how you can help!
- Your campaign donation of any amount supports a new lending program of internet-enabled devices with mobile data access.
- You will be helping families, youth, and seniors connect virtually for educational, employment, socializing, and other purposes.
- Every dollar of this campaign will help Brampton Library to buy much-needed technology, such as Chromebooks and Wi-fi hotspots, for borrowing and use in our spaces.
If you want to encourage learning and community engagement for all ages, reduce barriers, and improve the outlook for those who are struggling, complete the form below.
