History of W.F. CHisholm

Construction on the newest addition to the Windsor Public Library system, the W.F. CHISHOLM BRANCH was completed well ahead of schedule and the Branch officially opened in October 2017. The new $2.46 million, 6,500 sq. ft. library is a 21st. century facility with a distinctly automotive theme and connects to the west end of the Optimist Community Centre on Ypres Avenue in South Walkerville. Designed by Dan Amicone of Architecttura Inc., of Windsor, Ontario, construction began in late 2016. The total collection size is 22,000 volumes comprising print, audio, video and multilingual resources for children, teens, adults and seniors, public computers, WIFI, study space, cutting edge technical resources and the space to house a 4,600 volume Automotive Archive. The Branch is named for W.F. CHISHOLM, a well-respected local automotive executive and founder of Rose City Ford Sales Limited.
