"If present indications materialize, Bradford Public Library will be open by June 1st or shortly thereafter, The Witness is informed by the board secretary, Mr. Dan Blake.
At a meeting last Friday evening the Board accepted the Council's plans for a room in the rear of the Town Hall for a library and a contract has been let by Council to Mr. Mac Campbell for the renovation of the room. As the Witness understands it, plans call for a door where the west window now is, and a single door, instead of the large double doors as at present, to allow entrance to the kitchen. A new floor will be laid and the room will be insulated and decorated, while electrical wiring will also be installed. A sidewalk along the west side of the town hall will provide entrance to the library room.
When this is all completed, Mr. Mowat, Director of Library Services, Toronto, will come up to offer advice on shelving, etc., for the books.
In preparing this room for a library, Council is endeavouring to fulfill the wish of the ratepayers, expressed by their vote, for a public library in Bradford."
