BACKGROUND

As part of the process of moving Westmount Branch into its new home in the Southwest multipurpose facility currently under construction, the Library Branch will have a temporary home in the Westmount Shopping Centre from November 14, 2017 through to September 2018.

The building and property currently housing the Westmount Branch Library has sold and the new owners will take possession of the property.

London Public Library is part of a partnership to build a multipurpose facility in the southwest area of London. Our partners are the City of London and YMCA. Plans are underway for a wonderful library in this new facility. This facility is slated to open in the fall of 2018.

Westmount Library Closure

Enjoyed many years at the Westmount location. Sorry to hear it close. Many people in the community use that branch.

New location is coming

Hello Lorraine,  You are likely aware that the Westmount Branch is moving into the Westmount Shopping Centre temporarily before it moves permanentlyl into the new Southwest Community Centre, YMCA and Library facility currently under construction at Southdale Rd and Bostwick Rd.  This new facility will offer many resources that are not available in the current location and we look forward to welcoming the Westmount community into this fantastic new space in the fall of 2018.
