On Saturday, the Municipality of Addington Highlands was proud to host local MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington, Randy Hillier, to help them unveil the new Denbigh Library. In 2011, the municipality was awarded a $72,500 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) to relocate the Denbigh Library to the new Addington Highlands Community Centre.
The new location provides patrons and visitors with a fully accessible, air-conditioned library,accessible unisex wash washroom and entrance to the building. The renovations included opening one and a half classrooms into one bright room, providing space for a new children’s area, a youth and teen’s area, a space for adults to sit and read, visit with friends, or use computer work stations.
The new Denbigh Library is sure to provide a public service which will be a source of community pride for many years to come.
“Education and knowledge are hallmarks of a prosperous society. I am pleased to see this Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant will improve accessibility to library services for local residents.”
-Randy Hillier, MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox & Addington
“With this grant we were able to provide the community a bright, accessible area to read, meet with friends or surf the net.
We are thankful for the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s commitment to building healthy and vibrant communities.”
June Phillips, CEO, Addington Highlands Public Library.
