This fall the WHA will present a hybrid series of three lectures entitled THE WESTMOUNT PUBLIC LIBRARY SINCE 1899. This series is a prelude to Westmount Public Library’s 2024 celebrations which mark its 125th anniversary. It begins with the evolution of the building complex, then goes inside to learn about the expansion of collection, programmes and services, and ends by delving into the treasures housed in its archives. The series is done with the collaboration of WPL. Go to our Events page to see details, including dates, times and how to reserve a place if you wish to attend in-person or obtain a link to the online presentation

The theme of this edition of The Westmount Historian is ‘researching our roots’. Many of us have been doing just that, propelled by a longtime interest and enabled by a lot of time spent indoors in the past few years. So many fine articles have been submitted to this publication that there will be spillovers into future issues.
An electronic copy is available free to members, or may be purchased for $5 from the WHA Archives.
