Library board eyes site

News Oct 02, 2008 Flamborough Review

The Hamilton Library Board has chosen Flamborough’s former town hall as the preferred site for a new branch library in Waterdown.

Built in 1973 and currently serving as Flamborough’s Municipal Service Centre, the Dundas Street East building would be demolished and replaced by a new structure that would be home to the library as well as a number of city and community services. These include the offices of Hamilton Community Policing, Flamborough Information and Community Services (FICS), the Flamborough Archives and Ward 15 councillor Margaret McCarthy. McCarthy said she welcomes the concept of a new multi-use building constructed on city-owned property. Originally, it had been suggested that the new library would be built in Waterdown East where new residential development is planned. Development charges from the new growth will be used to cover the cost of the new facility.

The library board, at its September meeting, endorsed a motion to inform the city of the preferred site and its desire to partner with the city in creating the building for shared use.
