The Landon branch library has served the city's "Old South" since 1918 and from its present location since 1955. The library is ideally situated in the Wortley Village, within walking distance of five elementary schools, a high school, two daycares and numerous seniors' apartment buildings. The building had a facelift in 1998 and 2005 improving accessibility making washrooms and meeting rooms accessible to all. The building is home to a remarkable collection of public art including thirteen magnificent stained glass windows by Ted Goodden; two handmade quilts by Skye McDonald and three framed posters by Greg Curnoe. We serve an increasing number of young families and one of the London's highest concentrations of seniors.
Community groups including Old South Community Organization, Wortley Merchants, Old South Heritage groups, Old South Justice Circle and Middlesex London Health Unit meet regularly at the Branch.
