New Central Library
The Windsor Public Library Board has approved the new Central Library Functional Plan which administrative staff and architect Jason Grossi began in 2016.
The two-phase initiative captures the vision for a new central library and includes costing estimates and the results of various community consultations.
The Plan provides a road map for the Windsor Public Library Board and City Council to follow and move forward and build a new Central Library in downtown Windsor by 2026. The executive summary, background, consultation process, the plan, costing estimates and appendices can be found here. The document now goes to City Council for discussion and approval.

John Muir Library
The JOHN MUIR branch will be the newest in the Windsor Public Library system when it opens in late Spring 2019. The $2,518,000 heritage project was designed to renovate the 1921 Sandwich Fire Hall and stable on Mill Street into a public library. Named for John Muir who served as Vice-Principal of General Brock Public School for 4 years in the 1970s and who returned as principal from 1981 to 1987 and immediately became a leader in advocating for a public library in Sandwich. Mr. Muir passed away in July 2016.
