Hamilton Public Library (HPL) and Councillor Judi Partridge today announced the generous donation of the TD Canada Trust bank branch building and property in Carlisle to the Hamilton Public Library. The building in the centre of Carlisle, Ontario, at 277 Carlisle Rd., will serve as a highly visible community hub and gathering place.
“As the City Councillor for the area, I am delighted to see the building will be used as the new Carlisle Library. Many Carlisle residents have worked with me over the past 10 years to bring a new library to Carlisle. When renovations are complete, the new library will make great use of the site and will serve the Carlisle community well into the future. The community is very grateful for the TD Bank and Hamilton Library staff who have worked with our team to make the new Carlisle Library site a reality.” – Councillor Judi Partridge
“TD Bank Group’s generosity made this donation possible. Together with the City of Hamilton, HPL will work over the next few months to prepare a concrete plan to make this project a success,” says HPL’s Board Chair Nick van Velzen. “After renovations, the residents of Carlisle will enjoy a vibrant community space that will serve for generations to come.”
“We want to also thank Hamilton City Council and Councillor Judi Partridge for securing $1.75 million in capital funding to transform the building into a modern, accessible library,” van Velzen added.
