Honey Harbour History

The Honey Harbour Public Library was started as a Lion’s Club project in 1974 and in the spring of 1975 a trailer was purchased from the Federal Government. The trailer was moved to the Honey Harbour Public School yard and was officially opened on August 7, 1975. The Township of Georgian Bay Public Library Board became active as part of the Algonquin Regional Library System.
In October 1980 the Honey Harbour Public Library rented a building (the old liquor store) as a larger space was needed and also this building was closer to the center of town.
As times changed and progressed, the Township of Georgian Bay Public Library was no longer connected to the Algonquin Regional Library System but became linked with the Ontario Public Library System.
The library grew and the Board again realized that more space was needed. In 1992, Mayor Dot Donnelly announced that the Township of Georgian Bay had purchased the North Shore property and that the ground floor would be turned into a library.
On July 18, 1992, the new library opened and it is in the same location today.
The Honey Harbour Enhancement Committee was formed under the Strategic Plan, 2009-2012. The Committee studied the needs of the library and applied for a Trillium Grant in November, 2010. The grant was approved in March, 2011 and in May the library was refurbished to allow a more welcoming environment and accessibility.
