Central - Living Room 1st Floor

The Read. Learn. Live. photography exhibit, by artist Peter Bregg, focuses on the global learning crisis.

An estimated 274 million primary school children worldwide are not learning basic foundations skills (like reading and writing), which are necessary to lead productive and healthy lives. This is the global learning crisis that CODE (Canadian Organization for Development through Education) and its many Canadian supporters are working to address. The Read. Learn. Live. photography exhibit, by artist-peter Bregg, aims to inform and inspire Canadians of all walks of life. CODE works within the broader global movement of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

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.
