One Book, One L&A

Our community reading program

Books are Just the Beginning

Every day, the library helps people discover something new, connect with their community, and feel inspired. Across our branches you’ll discover expansive collections, programming for all ages and interests, and welcoming faces and spaces.

Getting Around the Libraries

Five branches across the County of Lennox and Addington are available to serve you. Drop by your local branch to browse collections, attend a program, access public computers or wifi, or to work, study, or just hangout. Click on a branch below to learn more about its location, hours, and services.

Your library card provides endless opportunities to explore, learn, create and connect. In addition to online access to digital resources and titles, you can check out physical items from any location and return them to any branch.

Book Clubs

Book Clubs are an important part of the reading ecosystem. They are a great way for you to discover new books and connect with fellow readers. The library runs in-house book clubs, but we also support book clubs in the wider community.

Programs & Events

Across our five branches, we have dozens of programs and events each week. From storytelling for tots, kids and families, to book clubs, crafting, maker workshops, local heritage and tech support, there is something for everyone at your public library.
