Many of you have asked where you can make a donation in tribute to her life and work. She was a builder of libraries with a global perspective. Donations to any of the following organisations would be a fitting tribute to her work and passions.

Vivian Cummins Endowment

The Circle of Friends of the Library (Vivian was the President) is setting up an award for a NPSIA student in her memory. It will honour her involvement in the Library as well as in NPSIA.

Donations to the award can be made to

Elizabeth DiSabato, Scholarship Development & Stewardship Specialist
Tel: (613) 520-2600 Ext:8977


Denise Mayer, Awards Administration Officer
Tel: (613) 520-2600 ext. 4140.

The money donated to the Circle in her memory would be tax receipted through the Development (Advancement) Office.

Another way of honouring Vivian would be to volunteer for The Circle of Friends. They have just lost an important member.
