Two libraries in Aylmer rejected by county

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

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.
