130 Years to Celebrate

Did you know that 2014 is St. Thomas Public Library's 130th Anniversary? Imagine that! After much digging in our dusty archives, we have a copy of a handwritten bylaw that City Council passed in 1884, stating that a free library would be established January 1885.

Read our current list of reasons to celebrate on our Pinterest Board.
