April 9, 2020 – Hamilton Public Library has partnered with Indwell, a local, affordable-housing charity, to offer a new, 1,500 square-foot neighbourhood library in Indwell’s four-storey McQuesten Lofts. Scheduled to open by the end of 2020, the facility will include 50 one-bedroom apartments, as well as the neighbourhood library.
The City of Hamilton and Hamilton Public Library are working with the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board on a new joint-use facility at the old Greensville school site.
Plans call for a 3,400-square-foot library, as part of a community hub featuring a new elementary school and daycare centre. The library area will feature community rooms with a kitchenette, meeting rooms, children’s area, reading lounge and outdoor reading space.
