Timmins Public Library

High ceilings and soaring timber columns make this an architectural gem and community haven. Timber was chosen as the primary building material to reflect the importance of the forest products sector in the heritage, culture and economy of Timmins. Find out more about the history and background of the Timmins Public Library here. The library houses a comprehensive local history collection but, due to COVID-19, access is presently limited. You can still, however, explore the rich history of mining in Northern Ontario through a digitized version of the Porcupine Advance (1912-50).
