Pakenham Branch Expansion

Thanks to a Canada 150 grant and the support of the Municipality of Mississippi Mills, the Pakenham Branch will be undergoing an expansion! Closing in late fall and relocating to the Pakenham Public School temporarily, our temporary hours will be Monday to Friday, 3:45 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. We hope to be open in our newly renovated and expanded branch by July 1, 2017!
