Extended Hours for Codrington Branch


On behalf of the Brighton Public Library Board of Trustees and CEO, we would like to extend our thanks to the Municipality for the budget passed for 2018.

We are excited to announce that we will be fulfilling our commitment to provide increased hours of operation to the Codrington community as a result of the funding received from the Municipality in the 2018 budget. In addition to the regular Codrington branch hours of operation we will be serving the Codrington community every Sunday in May through October coinciding with the Codrington Farmers Market hours from 10am to 2pm. We look forward to our first Sunday opening on May 6th.

As a reminder library service is still available at the temporary Boutique Library located at 10 Alice St. with regular hours of operation for the remainder of renovations.

We need your support!


We need your support to make our new library space a success. We areRendering very happy to be provided with expanded space by the Municipality of Brighton. The space however, comes unfurnished.

The Library Board and the Friends of the Brighton Public Library must raise $150,000.00 to purchase shelving, furniture and equipment for the expanded library space. With your help we can raise the funds required to make your library expansion a success.

You can join the efforts of the Library Board and the Friends of the Brighton Public Library in purchasing needed shelving, furniture and equipment by using any of the following methods:

Sand Parents...changing lives two people at a time 


Sand Parents

Do you love to read? Do you love children? Do you have a story to share with the next generation?
Sounds like Sandparents is just for you!

Sandparents is a fun and interactive reading program offered to children ages 3-6 years old from Brighton. Mature adults (Sandparents) are partnered with a child to read, sing, play games, make crafts, story tell and generally interact together to form a mutually beneficial friendship.

The Sandparents program offers a positive and enriched environment for children to learn and practice Early Literacy Skills.

To volunteer as a Sandparent or to inquire about the program, please contact Pat Artkin at 613-242-4054 or for more information. You can also register online at our website

It's a small time commitment, but it can make a BIG impact in the lives of these children.
