On December 23, 1915, the first branch of the London Public Library, the East Branch Library, was opened on the corner of Dundas and Rectory Streets in the East London Town Hall. It was moved in 1926 to the corner of Dufferin and Quebec Streets and named after the Director of London Public Library who served from 1906 to 1916. The present building was constructed in 1977.
The collection is varied and includes adult and children’s books, DVDs, videos, compact discs, audio cassettes, large print books and literacy kits. Wheelchair accessible.
