Brampton Library is Inspiring Connections

12

All great cities are known for their libraries, and Brampton is no exception. Originating from interesting historical roots, Brampton Library is a renowned, award winning system with six branches that reflect and celebrate the distinct neighbourhoods in which they are based.

Founded by John Haggert, Adam Morton, and D.L. Scott in 1858, and run by the Mechanics’ Institute, Brampton Library began with just two shelves of books and periodicals, donated by local residents. By 1866, the growing collection contained several hundred standard classics, and even a few games.
