Hamilton Public Library supports local artists, artisans and organizations by providing free exhibition space.

There are more than 110 nations in the world that recognize their citizens’ right to clean air, fresh water and healthy food. Canada is not one of them — yet.  Blue Dot now has 164 communities in 10 provinces and 2 territories that have issued municipal declarations about the right to a healthy environment. Together, these communities represent more than one third of all Canadians. During this election year, we are asking all MP candidates to pledge support for legal recognition of this basic human right.

For the fifth consecutive year, the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board and the Hamilton Wentworth Catholic Board are collaborating with Hamilton Blue Dot to invite their schools, both elementary and secondary, to create artwork depicting what Blue Dot and the Right to a Healthy Environment means to local students. In addition to being displayed at their home schools for Earth Week, many of these pieces will be on display at the Hamilton Public Library in Jackson Square for May.

About the library

The first Hamilton Public Library building opened on September 16, 1890 by the Earl and Countess of Aberdeen on the north side of Main Street West. In 1913, a new main library opened. This building was replaced in 1980 by Central Library, at the current location on York Boulevard.

In 2010, Central Library re-opened after approximately 18 months of renovations. Central Library opened with a newly revitalized first floor, which includes a Community Living Room that takes advantage of natural light. The Ontario Library Association honoured Central in 2012 with an Architectural and Design Transformation award.
