Part of Ayr Public Library
This series contains financial records generated by the Ayr Public Library over the Library's lifetime as an independent organization, between 1899 and 1968. These financial records represent the day-to-day operations of the Library, as the series includes the cancelled cheques the Library used to make payments, as well as the receipts and bills that indicate to whom the money was owed. The cheques and receipts indicate the wide range of goods and services that the Library purchased, including many regular bills for utilities, cleaning services and fuel, as well periodic purchases of equipment, furniture, repairs and, naturally, books. The series also contains monthly bank statements from the Canadian Bank of Commerce (predecessor of CIBC), including both handwritten deposit and statement books and loose-leaf printed statements. As well. there are annual financial statements prepared by Library staff; several surviving ledgers, in which were recorded financial transactions; and an eclectic collection of the tax forms for the Library's small staff. Series is arranged chronologically.
