Culture Perth and Kinross Libraries to accept donations

  • Published: February 28th 2022
Culture Perth & Kinross -
 We have been so overwhelmed with the generosity of everyone donating items to support the refugees escaping the conflict in Ukraine that we’re going to have to pause accepting all donations until we find larger premises to store items.
Once we have new storage facilities, we’ll let you know ASAP about accepting donations in our libraries once more.

From Tuesday 1 March, all Culture Perth and Kinross libraries will be accepting donations from people wishing to support refugees escaping the conflict in Ukraine. The following items can be dropped off at any of our 12 open libraries. Donations, unfortunately, cannot be accepted on our three mobile libraries.

Sleeping bags/matsBandagesCanned food
TentsPainkillersFormula milk

Please bring clothes in clean, neat, or new for anyone who wants to donate clothes. Please pack items in boxes or bags, but separate food from other items, so they don’t mix.

Staff at our libraries will be on hand to accept donations during regular library opening times. Opening times can be found here.

Donations will be collected by Culture Perth and Kinross staff and taken to either one of the four Campus Libraries or to the AK Bell Library, where volunteers from the Polish Scouting Association will sort and pack items for onward delivery to Poland.
