History of Southwood Library

Southwood Library opened in 1966. The decision to build it came after a group of 1,000 determined residents signed a petition to have a Library added to their neighbourhood. The majority of the location’s champions at the time were children, who would grow up in this Library, and later bring their children and grandchildren to visit. Several neighbourhood families have been patrons of this location for three generations or more.

Southwood is home to many return patrons, who stop by daily to chat with staff they know by name. For this reason, staff recommendations are particularly popular here, and patrons are known to read through every title suggested by their favourite staff members.

Since 2012, Southwood has also been the site of our first Library community garden.
