ONLINE AUCTION

Our main fundraising activity in 2021 is an Online Auction, building on the success of last year’s virtual event. Bidding runs from October 27 to November 7, 2021.

Volunteers are now requesting sponsorships as well as goods and services to offer for bids.

Our 2020 Online Auction raised over $50,000 for our community programs and services. That’s a vital chunk of our modest budget, and we’re deeply grateful to everyone who contributed.

Engaging Seniors with a Story to Tell!

In the summer of 2020 we started a year-long project to engage seniors in creatively documenting and sharing accounts of important life experiences. Our tech-savvy team have patiently guided participants in using digital technology for text, still photos, art, audio and video – all the coaching online because of the pandemic.

The project participants are exhibiting their works to the public in the Spring of 2021. Stay tuned for details of the showcase events.

We have wonderful partners, including Concordia University’s engAGE and Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling, the Montreal West Public Library and Suoni Per Il Popolo.

For more information, please contact our project coordinator, Eric Craven, at eric@atwaterlibrary.ca.
