Author Andrew Hunter is interviewed by Karen Turner.
Hunter is the author of It Was Dark There All the Time, which builds on the testimony of Benjamin Drew's interview with Sophia Burthen who arrived as an enslaved person into what is now Canada sometime in the late 18th century. Hunter's book demonstrates the role the slave trade played in pre-Confederation Canada and its continuing impact on contemporary Canadian society. Karen Turner interviews the author.

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.
