Two libraries in Aylmer rejected by county
A proposal by Aylmer council to expand the town’s Old Town Hall library by leasing additional space at the nearby Trillium Park condominium building got shot down in a 5-4 vote at Elgin County council, Tuesday, Sept. 22.
County councillors rejected the proposal largely due to an estimated $30,000 additional cost a year to staff two sites instead of one.
They did, however, agree to consider allowing the town to lease space for single larger new library from a private owner. Almost all the county’s library branch buildings are now municipally-owned.
