The Bancroft Public Library, “your doorway to discovery”, serves our community with information, entertainment and learning opportunities through print, multi-media and electronic resources.
Bancroft Public Library provides a current collection of fiction and non-fiction materials, a Literacy Centre, on-line resources, and has access to materials in other libraries through the Interlibrary Loan Service.
Free public access to the Internet is available at the library, including computer stations and wireless access. Non-Internet computers with interactive, literacy-based books and related games are located in the children’s room.
Children’s programming is held every Saturday from 11:00 am to noon, in the children’s room. Each week is a different theme, and includes reading, crafts, music and snacks. The cost to attend is 50 cents per child, or $1 per family. Pre-registration is requested.
If you wish to obtain a membership, you must apply in person at the Bancroft Public Library. Valid identification (example: Driver's License) with your current residential address and/or proof of land ownership is required. Any resident or ratepayer of the Town of Bancroft or Township of Faraday is entitled to a FREE membership at Bancroft Public Library. If you are a non-resident applicant (not from Bancroft or Faraday) you may still apply to be a member of the library for a fee of $25.00 per household per annum, or $15.00 per household for 6 months.
