Elgin/Administration Branch

 P.O. Box 189 26 Halladay Street Elgin, ON K0G 1E0 613-359-5315 elgin@rideaulakeslibrary.ca

Description & History

In 1975, the Elgin (South Crosby) branch of the original Rideau Lakes Union Library was designated as library headquarters because of its central location and size. It has retained this position through all the library changes. In 2003, the original library was totally renovated as part of a new municipal complex with a fire hall, community room and post office.

In 2012, thanks to a Trillium grant, the Elgin branch received a complete makeover with new shelving, a new circulation desk and book drop.


Branch Highlights

The main branch houses a collection of over 10,000 books, a large reference section and a local history and genealogy collection. The brightly decorated juvenile room is a hub for our children's programs and class visits. We have three community access computers and a literacy station in the juvenile area. Like the other branches, this one offers high speed connectivity and wireless access for laptops. Elgin also has photocopying facilities.
