We are expanding to better serve you!

The Oakville Public Library is excited to expand our reach, deepen our community connection and inspire you further with the construction of the new Sixteen Mile Branch, scheduled to open in early 2019. In the future, the current Sixteen Mile Sports Complex will expand to include a library and recreation facility. However, OPL recognized the current and growing need for valuable library services in this area, and as such is constructing the Sixteen Mile Branch to serve this community in the interim. The branch will be located in the parking lot of the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex at 3070 Neyagawa Blvd. The branch will be 5,000 square feet – slightly smaller than a standard basketball court – and will offer many of the amenities and services you expect from OPL branches, including:
  • A collection of books, DVDs and other library materials
  • Reading spaces and study tables
  • Computers
  • A children’s area
  • Automated check-in stations with 24/7 access
OPL is excited to offer this library branch to our valued customers in early 2019. If you are looking for library services in the Sixteen Mile Creek area in the meantime, we encourage you to visit OPL’s Sixteen Mile Holds Depot (inside the Sports Complex), where you can pick up holds and return library materials. We thank you for your patience while we go through this transition, and we look forward to seeing you at the new Sixteen Mile Branch! Please stay tuned for more details, such as branch location and hours.
