To celebrate 125 years of library service to the community, WPL is featuring photographs from the local history collection and community archive. On a daily basis for the balance of December, we will present an interesting and unique image of our city, which we hope will fascinate and entertain.
The Riverside Public Library became a branch of the Windsor Public Library system on annexation of the town of Riverside in 1966. The original Riverside library opened in 1939, and the building pictured was constructed in 1955, with renovations that doubled its size in 1959. It served as a Windsor Public Library branch until the new branch was built on the other side of Victor Drive. The site of the former branch is now the Riverside branch parking lot
