History / Biographical
The Aylmer Mechanics' Institute and Library Association was established November 9, 1874, under the governance of a Board of Directors, and maintained a reading room/library at Aylmer Town Hall. The institution became a Free Library in 1897, and a Public Library in 1901.
From ca. 1905-1912 the Library occupied various locations on Talbot Street East, Aylmer.
In 1912 Aylmer citizens David Marshall and J.J. Nairn purchased property on the southwest corner of Centre and Sydenham Streets which they then donated to the Town of Aylmer. A new Library building was constructed on this site in 1912-1913 with funds secured from the Andrew Carnegie Foundation. The Library opened in its new premises in the Carnegie Library building at 62 Centre Street, Aylmer in the early spring of 1913.
In 1940 the Aylmer Public Library joined the Elgin County Library Association, and continued as a member of that organization when it was re-formed as the Elgin County Library Co-Operative in May 1947.
The Aylmer Public Library Board administered the Library until it was disbanded in December 1965 as a result of legislation amalgamating all Elgin County municipal public library boards under the authority of Elgin County Council. Aylmer Public Library became the Aylmer branch of the Elgin County Library effective January 1, 1966.
In 1982 the Library returned to its original location, relocating to newly renovated premises on the ground floor of Aylmer Old Town Hall at 38 John Street South, Aylmer.
Long-serving supervising librarians have included Agnes Haight (1911 (acting) /1912 (permanent) -1938), Helen Youell (1938-1952), Elinor Given (1952-1983), and Christina Mayhew (1983-April 2014).
