Donor Recognition

This page is dedicated to our amazing supporters who have helped us get to where we are!


Amnon Buchbinder's Collection

Amnon Buchbinder passed away in November of 2019. Amnon's family have donated his private collection of comics and graphic novels to the library so that they could be shared with community members. Amnon was a filmmaker, author and professor of screenwriting at York University’s School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design. You can find a list of titles donated with a link to records for those catalogued so far here.

Steven M. Bergson, Library and Information Professional and editor of The Jewish Comix Anthology, asked that his friends and family donate to the Canada Comics Open Library as a present for his birthday in 2019. Here we recognize those who carried out his wishes and wished him a happy birthday by supporting CCOL.

Fundraising Campaigns

Help Keep the Comics Library Open! | Indiegogo

Our second crowdfunding campaign can be found here. Those perks which included web recognition are reflected here to recognize our generous contributors— we would not be where we are without you! From this campaign, we are able to rent our space for another YEAR and make our collection circulating so community members can take home comics! As of January 2020, we have been in our CSI Regent Park location for over 9 months!
