Library’s 10th Anniversary – Looking for residents to share their memories


The Kemptville Norenberg Branch of the North Grenville Public Library is officially turning ten on May 28. This beautiful building, a jewel in the crown of downtown Kemptville, is the result of the entire community’s efforts to create a library that they could be proud of. And what a building it is, with its dramatic architecture, comfortable modern spaces, and of course, ample shelves of books. It looks as good as it did on Opening Day, although admittedly a few of the books and armchairs may be showing the love they have received over the years.

The Room to Read Campaign, launched in 2008, spearheaded the fundraising efforts to build the new library and there are so many people to thank for their contributions. We hope to be able to thank them in person and to celebrate this achievement together, when it is safe to do so again.

In the meantime, the Library Board is asking for members of the community to share stories and photos about the new library, whether they be from fundraising events you attended, memories of taking part in Library Sue’s programs there, or perhaps about the building itself. If you have something you would like to share, please contact the CEO, Rachel Brown, by phone at 613-258-4711 or by email at [email protected].
