Rotary Reading Garden Revealed

The Rotary Reading Garden at Central Library is a beautiful oasis that is open to the public but is a secret to many. The Garden and its history was profiled recently on daytime on Rogers TV.  You can watch the segment here and we invite you to visit the Garden to explore all it has to offer, from quiet spots to unwind, read, visit with friends or eat your lunch to a great venue for library programs such as concerts and performances. 

The Garden is also available to rent for community events, performances and celebrations or for your private or business function. Call 519-661-5120 for more information about renting the Garden and our other meeting spaces.  Central Library meeting space rates can be found on our website here.
