The library serves the informational, educational and entertainment needs of the community, with a wide selection of books, newspapers, magazines, music CDs, DVDs, and local history. We also offer many services including children’s programming, public access computers, a colour copier, faxing, scanning, a meeting room, home-bound service, and inter-library loans.  The library is supported by a group called Friends of the Espanola Public Library.

The Library Staff appreciate the patience of the public as we progress through what has proven to be a challenging transition to our new system.

Please continue to bear with us as we determine and correct the multiple little 'glitches' that are a routine part of any major system improvement.

Access to our collection has changed -  NEW LIBRARY CATALOGUE 

FYI - all 14 digits / symbols of bar code + valid PIN required to access your account - call / visit Library to get PIN information.

If you have not yet re-registered by completing and signing a paper form at the library at some point since March 1, you need to come in and do so in order to maintain access to your electronic books or your personal account information.  Through your personal account, you can now place holds and renew items from your home.  Watch for further announcements regarding new and interesting capabilities as we move forward.


From Centre Street (Hwy 6), turn west on Park Street, and left on Spruce Street.  There is a large parking lot for both the library and the Recreation Complex.
