Fundraising & Donations


Government funding cutbacks over the past number of years have meant a constant struggle for many small libraries including the Killaloe & District Public Library. As a result more and more emphasis has been placed on fundraising. Each May we hold our flagship fundraising event, the Annual Plant and Book Sale, to raise money for library operations.

Help Support Your Library

If you or your group are interested in helping with existing fundraising programs or would like to sponsor a fundraising event or activity, please contact the library and speak to our librarian. We can always use a helping hand.
