Deja Views: A look back to the Beaches Branch Library in 1917

The above archival photo shows the Beaches Branch Library in 1917, a year of it opened. Inset photo shows the library today.

By DAVID VAN DYKE

The Beaches Public Library was opened in December of 1916. This archival photograph above was taken in the following year.

For me, the Beaches Library has always been a focal point for the community.
