Ontario's oldest Library, in Niagara-on-the-Lake, will be unable to serve the residents of the enlarged area created by the merging of the two municipalities. Severe cut backs in their budget leave the library board at a great disadvantage now that they must serve 12,000 odd residents. Established more than 150 years ago by 1871 the public library was a well patronised institution. The small collection of the existing library amounts to no more than roughly one book per resident but there are some very rare and valuable publications numbered among the collection. These are not allowed out to borrowers but research workers may avail themselves of the books. In this picture Gerda Molson fixes a book shelf at the Niagara on the Lake library.
