  • The calendar says it is Spring, even if the weather is slow in catching on.  Spring is traditionally a time of renewal or new life.  Hopefully you will have noticed a few signs of renewal in the library as well – this new section of the website being one example.  I hope to keep you up to date on some of the ongoing work of the Library Board and Administration. 
  • 2015 marks the beginning of a new term of the library board.

For ninety years Niagara Camp on the historic commons in Niagara-on-the-Lake witnessed the training of tens of thousands of militia men; during the Great War over 75,000 men and women of the Canadian Expeditionary Force received their basic training here before being sent overseas; many never returned. This presentation will give a glimpse of life under canvas and relate the remarkable military odysseys of some of the camp veterans. The Welland Canal Force will be described in some detail as well as the unique eighteen-month Polish Army Training Camp at Niagara.
