History
"Sensible how much we are at a loss in this new and remote country for every kind of knowledge, and convinced that nothing would be of more use to diffuse knowledge amongst us and our offspring than a library supported by subscription in this town; we whose names are hereunto subscribed hereby associate ourselves together for that purpose . . ."

On June 8th, 1800, forty-one prominent residents of our community came together to form a subscription library. The Record Book opens with the above quotation. We owe a great debt to these founders whose leadership and foresight paved the way for the establishment of public libraries in Canada.

The remarkable history of Upper Canada's oldest public library makes it an integral part of a region rich in cultural tradition. When the Town was burned during the War of 1812, many library books were destroyed but the Library survived and became a free public library in 1938. Over the past two centuries, from many different locations, the Library has borne [handwritten note: Alison - please note corrected spelling.] witness to the events which shaped our contemporary world.

The state-of-the-art facility opening this autumn will enable the Library to continue to grow, prosper, "diffuse knowledge", and serve both present and future generations of our community.
