Our Library Resources

Situated at 19 Cambridge Road  in the historic Old Bellerive Post Office with its prominent clock tower, our library provides a convenient venue for researchers. The building, built in 1897, is located close to bus stop 17 in Bellerive Village on Metro route 616 from Rosny Park available Monday to Friday. See map below.

Alternatively, take a bus to stop 8 on route 615 near York Street then walk through the village. Route 615 operates Monday to Sunday inclusive.
The library is staffed by volunteer members who are always willing to help and houses a huge number and variety of paper, book, microfiche, film and computer based resources.   Many TFHS Inc. publications are available for sale.
