Welland Public Library gettting ready to open new branch at the mall

The Welland Public Library will open the doors of its new all service branch at Seaway Mall at the end of the month.

A grand opening is set for Tuesday, June 27, 2017 at 10:30 am.

Welland Public Library staff will be available to give tours to attendees and to answer questions.

The new library is located between Bentley Leathers and the Seaway Mall Customer Service Desk and across from Maurices, Telus and Hometown Treasures.

 The 5,000 square foot branch has five adult and four children's computer stations and will offer programs for people of all ages.

In addition to over 8000 items of its own, the Seaway Mall Branch will offer both inter-library loan services and transit requests for print and media materials from the Main and Diamond Trail branches.

The library partnership with Seaway Mall aims to make library services easily accessible to patrons - with free parking and a convenient location - and to encourage current non-library users to try Welland Public Library for the first time.
