Thornhill Community Centre Branch

The Thornhill Community Centre Library has been serving the community since its opening in 1975. At opening, the library served a community of 28,000 and housed MPL’s administration staff. In 1989, an expansion to the south and east added additional space to serve the growing community. Federal infrastructure stimulus funding in 2009 allowed MPL to renovate the branch to improve space usage. As a Canada 150 legacy project the entrance to the community centre and library was revitalized with a pollinator garden and a statue to honour Benjamin Thorne, the founder of Thornhill.
