This facility has been shuttered for most of the past few years.l due to construction. They have a very small temp space open in the local mall. Tough to visit when it is closed.

I found this library to have a very good reference section on microfiche for arrivals to Canada. I found the staff very helpful in locating the reels I was after. It helped a great deal when I first started doing the genealogy on my ancestors.

One of the libraries that has everything in the city, maybe because of the very large multicultural area it services. It's a very big, modern library, with substantial renovations and additions in 2014. Many Eastern European collections are well represented, as are the Asians ones....More
