Niagara-on-the-Lake Public Library

Niagara-on-the-Lake Public Library

10 Anderson Lane
Niagara-on-the-Lake ON
L0S 1J0 Canada


On November 17, 1977, the Niagara-on-the-Lake Public Library gained formal recognition as the first circulating library to be established in Upper Canada. The Honorable Robert Welch, the Minister of Culture and Recreation, unveiled a plaque at the front of the Library's Court House location on picturesque Queen Street in the Old Town.

One hundred and seventy-seven years earlier, on June 8, 1800, forty-one prominent Niagara residents met to form a subscription library , which they named the Niagara Library. The first entry in the its record books reads:

"Sensible how much we are at a loss in this new and remote country for every kind of knowledge," the subscribers resolved, "and convinced that nothing amongst us and our offspring, then a library, supported by subscription in this town, we, whose names are hereunto subscribed hereby associate ourselves together for that purpose, and promise to pay annually a sum not exceeding four dollars to be laid out on books as agreed upon by a majority of votes at a yearly meeting".

Heading the subscription list, and probably instrumental in the library's organization, was Andrew Heron (1765-1848), a merchant, land speculator and resident in Niagara since 1785.
