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.

Friends of the Library

Bancroft Public Library Needs Friends!

The Bancroft Public Library is looking for more volunteers for our 'Friends of the Bancroft Library' group!

The Bancroft Library's need for a 'Friends' group is important because libraries receive funding from a variety of sources. This can include money from townships (through the taxpayers), provincial grants, petty cash that is collected from fines, and donations from a 'Friends of the Library' group. While the Bancroft Public Library receives money from some of these sources it is one of the few libraries around that does not have an established 'Friends of the Library' group.

What do these groups do? Usually, the 'Friends of the Library' group's goal is to support, fundraise and advocate for the library. The group is primarily responsible for organizing fundraising campaigns, and speaking out for library services in the community. 

If you are interested in supporting the Bancroft Public Library by becoming involved in the 'Friends of the Library' group, please contact Bancroft Public Library CEO Caroline Popadick at 613-332-3380, or This email address is being protected from spambots.
