From the Windsor Star May 17, 1954.
The Ontario Department of Education has tentatively approved plans for Riverside’s proposed new $55,000 public library, pictured above in a sketch prepared by the Windsor firm of Johnson and Mcwhinnie, architects. The project is still before town council for approval, as civic authorities seek a market for $50,000 in debentures which would be required to finance construction. Expected to be located on a Wyandotte street site, between Homedale and Patrice, the ultra-modern one-story structure would contain some 3,150 square feet of floor space and facilities for 11,500 books. Hardwood trim, an acoustic ceiling and recessed fluorescent lighting are included in plans for interior construction.
For the life of me, I can’t remember the old library. Was this the one that was built? It was knocked down in 1995, and replaced with the one above that occupies the same site.
Any memories of the old Library?
