Historic Photos

The first library in Grimsby was located in the home of village councilor Sam Mabey at 99 Main Street West. This library opened in April 1871 and was a Mechanics Institute Library and funded by the federal government. In 2004 the new state of the art facility, commissioned to architects Shore, Tilbe, Irwin and Partners and Reich and Petch, was opened. It is where the library and art gallery now continues serving the residents of Grimsby.
