If you’re one of the 3,400 people who visit Picton Library every month, you know that our 110-year-old Carnegie building is overdue for expansion. NOW is the TIME TO RENEW. Soon, a modern extension will double the size of Picton Library and maintain its heritage character. You can expect:

  • Expanded collection
  • Performance arts space with non-profit rental options
  • A new lecture theatre with assistive technologies
  • An enlarged children’s area and a dedicated Makerspace Room for STEM learning and lifelong enrichment
  • Flexible quiet workspaces and meeting room rentals
  • Accessible public washrooms
  • Comfortable chairs, good lighting, quiet spaces where we can all feel at home
  • A new walkway from Mary Street to Main Street

Bequests, donations, efforts of the Friends of Picton Library, a John M. and Bernice Parrott Foundation grant and a PEC Council investment are funding $900,000 of the $2,000,000 needed to expand Picton Library. TIME TO RENEW is a once-in-a-lifetime campaign to raise the remaining $1,100,000 needed for the Picton Library Expansion.
