Throwback Thursday

In 1886, Windsor’s first electric streetcars connected Windsor and Walkerville because of the growth of the Hiram Walker and Sons distillery. The Sandwich, Windsor & Amherstburg Railway (SW&A) built lines that would eventually connect Windsor to Amherstburg, Sandwich, Tecumseh – and beyond. The final line was replaced by buses in 1939. This photograph was taken around 1908. #throwbackthursday #archives #windsor #yqg #history  ...

RIP Ursula K. Le Guin

Acclaimed fantasy and science fiction author Ursula K. Le Guin died Monday, January 22, 2018 at the age of 88.

I was forever changed by what I read. I found her short story, The Ones Who Continue Reading...

New Year, New Look

If you are a frequent visitor to the Central Branch, you will have noticed a number of changes in the past year as fixtures and materials moved around.  Just this past week, more new bookshelves arrived.  Sounds of construction filled the first floor as the units were whirred and whapped together, and the second floor temporarily turned into a maze as the new fixtures queued up, waiting to be filled with books as the old shelves were emptied and disassembled. Purchased with monies from the Library’s Continue Reading...
