bullet For information on branch book clubs

bullet Sir William Stephenson Library opened in February 1997. This library services several communities (such as Garden Grove, the Maples, Tyndall Park) which were previously not in close proximity to other public libraries.

bullet After running a ‘name the library’ contest in which two members of the community chose the winning name, the name of this branch was changed from Northwest to the Sir William Stephenson Library, to honor the war hero and master spy who was also known as the ‘man called Intrepid’. To commemorate the name chosen for the branch, this library now houses a Sir William Stephenson statue, which was generously donated to the library by sculptor Leo Mol.
