Library service has a rich history in Oshawa, beginning in 1864 as a reading room in the Oshawa Mechanic’s Institute. As Oshawa grew from village to town to city, we grew along with it and we will explore this evolution through documents and images. 157 years have seen a lot of changes to the services we offer, but the core of what we do remains the same – connecting people to information and each other.
