Celebrating 50 Years of Service with VPL

In 1971, the Village of Woodbridge officially became part of the Town of Vaughan, and the Woodbridge Library Board joined with the Vaughan Public Library Board to become part of a larger system of libraries. The Woodbridge Public Library operated out of a former municipal building, but after 10 years it was time to move to a new location to serve the fast-growing population.

In 1981, former Library Board Chair, Isabel Little, lead a committee to build the current Woodbridge Public Library building on Woodbridge Ave. Built into an existing historic building, this was quite a process and resulted in the lovely, bright, window-filled building we have today. This library has served the community well for the past 50 years.
