One of the most talked about features of the Weston Branch, is its unique architecture.

The library is divided into two sections: the original Carnegie building built in 1914 by Lindsay & Brydon, and the addition built by Dunlop, Farrow and Aitken Architects in 1982.

Many characteristics of the new addition were created to resemble and complement the original building, but some of the most talked about trademarks of the library itself reside in the original section, namely our mosaic panels, and our stained glass windows.

Behind the scenes


A great deal of work went into the creation of this website and the oral history interviews conducted with it. We had a stellar cast of staff and youth volunteers who put in considerable time to this project.

I remember when... stories and interviews
