King Street Timelapse

We are delighted to unveil a stunning new mural titled "King Street Timelapse", designed by artist Lucy Bilson and located in the Ellis Little Local History Room at the Main Library. This project was made possible due to funding received from the Region of Waterloo Arts Fund.

We are grateful for the opportunity to showcase art that speaks to the local history of our city.

Pick up your holds even when the library is closed! You can request items to be delivered to the Holds Lockers at the John M. Harper Branch and retrieve them using your library card. These small library lockers are located just outside the library’s entrance inside the building we share with the Stork Family YMCA. If the building is open, you can retrieve your holds.
