Please note: the Library is now closed for our annual winter holiday period. We will reopen for regular hours on Saturday January 3rd.

The Board and Staff of the Augusta Township Public Library wish you a safe and happy holiday season.


Augusta Township Council is looking for potential members for various local Boards and Committees, including the Library Board, for the 2015-2018 term. These bodies are an integral part of the Township governance structure, and a way to make a substantial contribution to your community.

Serving on the Library Board entails being able to attend ten regularly-scheduled meetings per year, plus contributing to the work of selected Board committees. The committment level would be for at least one year.

Residents interested in being considered for membership on the Library Board should submit an application form, or send in a detailed resume, to:

Annette Simonian, Deputy Clerk, 3560 County Road 26, Prescott, ON  K0E 1T0 (Fax:  613-925-3499; email: asimonian@augusta.ca)

The deadline for receiving applications is Friday, January 9th.

A list of the various Township committees looking for members can be found on the home page of the Township website.


Now available to our Library patrons: the Ontario Library Service collection of tens of thousands of eBooks and audiobooks, powered by OverDrive, and available at the OLS Download Centre.

These books may be read (or listened to) via devices like e-readers, tablets and smartphones, but may also be read in your browser on a computer, or listened to via the OverDrive Media Console application. Full information on how to get started with Overdrive is available from the OverDrive Help page.


Our Web Catalog allows you to search our collection for books, enter reserve requests, check due dates for books you have out, and renew loans. For basic information on using the Catalog, see Getting Started.


Our Online Information Sources provide a wide range of services and databases, with the World Book encyclopedia, travel and health information, reader advisory sources, material for kids and teens, research resources, and more. These resources can be accessed from any Internet-connected computer.

New: two additional online information databases, previously only available on computers at the Library, can now be accessed from home. They are Global Road Warrior and A to Z Maps Online, and together they provide extensive resources for research and travel planning. To connect to them, please visit the Online Information Sources page.


Computing at the Library: our building offers free WiFi connectivity, providing Internet access for smartphones, tablets, laptop computers and other devices. We have seven desktop computers available for patron use, with application software such as Microsoft Office. In addition to general web browsing, these PCs feature links to the Ancestry genealogical site, Consumer Reports Online, A to Z Maps Online, and Global Road Warrior.


Used Books For Sale: the Library always has lots of items for sale, at the bargain price of 25 cents. Look for them when you visit.
