We would like to acknowledge the tremendous community support we have received from sponsors, organizations, and individuals on Gabriola Island. Without this continuing support, in cash and in kind, the library would not exist.
Our gratitude for the generosity of four local sponsors in our first year: the Gabriola Lions Club, the Mid-Island Co-op, Village Food Market, and Coastal Community Credit Union. We are tremendously grateful to them for believing in this project and providing the financial support to get the GTL established. Now in our second year, we deeply appreciate the contribution of the Gabriola Lions in providing funding for new tools to augment the inventory.
Our community partners have contributed invaluable and interminable support as in-kind contributions, expertise, and advice. We are especially grateful to David Vincent of sleepdeprived computer techs, to all the personnel at Arbutus Home Building Centre, and for continuing contributions from GIRO. We would like to acknowledge the contributions of individuals who have offered their expertise, including Chris Tyrell Loranger for promotional help, Mel Matthies for website advice, and Barrie and Cathy Humphrey and Pat and Lynn Smith, for offering much-needed storage and workshop space.
