About The Library
The Bonfield Public Library is situated in the village of Bonfield, approximately 32km East of North Bay. This library also serves the hamlet of Rutherglen within the Bonfield Township which is a partner in the Mattawa Bonfield Economic Development Corporation. We share our facilities with the Municipal Township Office and HRDC Resource Center. This building is housed in a municipal park with access to many outdoor recreation facilities such as a baseball field, tennis court, ice rink, and swimming area. In 1999 the population that we served was 2,081 with 956 households. Our library also serves the hundreds of Summer People who cottage on Lake Nosbonsing, Talon Lake and the Kaibuskong River which joins these two beautiful lakes.
The mission of the Bonfield Public Library is to provide individual learners with access to the resources of information or experiences which they find relevant to the changes, choices and decisions of their lives.
We believe that our library must meet the cultural, informational, educational and recreational needs of our community. We attempt to do this by providing access to an organized collection incorporating both print and non-print materials.
We recognize the need to co-operate with other libraries in networks, now and in the future, to share resources to provide the best possible service to our patrons.
We also intend to carry on an active role in making the community aware of resources, and the services we have to offer.
