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.

Friends and Family of Steven M. Bergson

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

Join the Canada Comics Open Library to help us stay open and grow! | Crowdfundr 2023

Our third crowdfunding campaign can be found right over here. This campaign included perks for web recognition, which are reflected in the  list of donors below who have helped us raise funds for the next year! This campaign was 102% funded, the best we have ever done, and has filled us with encouragement. We have been lending out the collection since March 2023, and we are so thrilled to be able to continue to do so for the next year. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported our unique library by sharing or contributing to this campaign and visiting CCOL in person 🙂
