On July 14, 1963 the new library officially opened. Villagers appeared pleased at finding a wide selection of books on all topics. 90 membership cards were issued the first week of operation and 3,000 books were on hand opening day.
In 1964, the library moved to the old dining room of the club for more space with the checkout counter being remodeled from the dining room’s bar. With the library growing at a rapid rate, the Library Society turned over the operation of the library to the Village (on May 23, 1965), which began to administer it through an appointed library board.
The decision to build a new library at its current location was made in 1968. A ground breaking ceremony on October 24, 1968 launched the construction of the new Library. The building, which can be described as “modified Aztec,” was designed by architects McKerchar and Wallace and sits behind the Village Hall, off U.S. 1. The contractor was W.G. Lassiter.
