This community library was the first to attempt to unite medical and social services at aneighbourhood level. The complex included a health clinic, daycare, and community services office.
The library opened there in April 1970. It was proudly the largest of the branch libraries at the time at almost 8,000 square feet, replacing the former Westbrook branch. It even had its own auditorium that seated 166.
What does the Temple B’nai Tikvah and this branch have in common? The temple briefly took up residence in this building in 1980.
