First volunteer librarian in Morin-Heights
In the 1960s, Walter S. Johnson offered a collection of books and funds to build a library in Trinity Hall, 841 Village Road. Henry Gillingham was asked to catalog and organize the collection with a few volunteers, including Elizabeth Weldon (1916-2007) who arrived in Morin Heights in 1971. She was the head physiotherapist at the Lachine Hospital and continued her private practice in Morin-Heights for several years until her retirement in 1976. Many people remember "Betty's" sparkling eyes, her sense of humour and her contagious laughter.
.The library was moved to the Morin-Heights Elementary School, and in 2000, moved to the newly renovated former fire hall. Today, the library is said to have the best collection of English books in the Laurentians and is part of the Réseau BIBLIO Laurentides, which provides readers with 5,000 more books in addition to the 5,700 books in the library.
