History

The by­law creating a library in Ameliasburgh Township was signed in 1975. The library’s first location was the back of Harry Bisdee’s store in the hamlet of Ameliasburgh. Later, the library was moved into the township hall, and finally found its present home in the 1848 (circa) stone schoolhouse on Whitney Road. In 2001, the Ameliasburgh Branch was renamed the “Al Purdy Library” in honour of the local poet.
