Timmins

For over ninety years, the Timmins Public Library has been a staple in our community. Throughout the years, the library has evolved into a vibrant community hub, a gathering place for people, ideas, and culture.

Ten years have passed since the opening of the new Timmins Public Library building at 320 Second Avenue, deemed to be an architectural gem. The Timmins Public Library opened to the public at its current location on April 25th, 2005. Sixteen thirty foot white spruce logs from Shillington, Ontario, line the clerestory of the library, which boasts an area of 25,000 square feet. Special features of the interior include a fireplace, natural wood finishes throughout and many windows of generous size.

The library offers 41 public access computers and a genealogy area equipped with 3 microform readers. Historic newspapers of the region are available to browse on microfilm. The public may book any one of the meeting rooms, which include a board room, 2 study rooms or the multi-purpose room. The library also has several study tables and carrels to spread out one’s work and many comfy chairs for cozy reading.

The Reference Desk is available to assist patrons with specific questions or research. Hundreds of items are borrowed each day and processed at the Circulation Desk. The Children’s Department hosts a variety of bilingual programs for young people. Local youth form the Teen Advisory Group (TAG) which meets once a month during the school year and serves as an advisory group. Educational, recreational and technology-related programming is available for adults and seniors as well. Online resources for members include eBooks in both English and French, downloadable audio books, ancestry.ca, research databases and more.

The Timmins Public Library also has a sister site, the C.M. Shields branch in South Porcupine, which opened to the public in 1968. It remains in its original location, with an active membership.
