The Westown Branch Library has been located in the Cherryhill Village Mall (formerly named the Westown Plaza Mall) since 1963. On October 16, 2001 we moved to the east end of the mall, expanded to 10,000 sq. ft., and changed our name to Cherryhill Branch.
We have a separate children's area, a second program room, greatly enhanced study and computer area, gallery space to feature local artists, a listening centre for tapes/CDs, a video/DVD viewing station, comfy reading chairs and multi-purpose computer workstations especially for kids. The branch features lots of space in the aisles to allow mobility of strollers, walkers, wheelchairs & scooters. To meet diverse ethnic needs, we have a large collection of non-English language materials to serve the needs of newcomers, and we established a program of Conversation Circles in which they can practice new language skills.
Our Library is truly a community hub. We partner with many other groups and organizations in order to provide a board spectrum of resources for our diverse community. Our partners include Ontario Early Years – London North Centre, Investing in Children, Families First, Middlesex London Health Unit, Third Age Outreach St Josephs’ Health Centre, Hutton House, Thames Valley Board of Education, and London District Catholic School Board.
