The WCHS meeting on May 5, 2019 was held at the Ennotville Historical Library with guest speaker, Jane Robertson, Librarian, speaking on the history of the Ennotville Library, how it came to be and how it has endured for so long.  Jane dressed in costume representing the first librarian.  The Library was started in 1847 by the early settlers who came to the lower Nichol area.  Many of them had brought a few books from the old country, which they passed from home to home.  Soon, they wanted a central location to make it easier to exchange these books.  Land was donated in the hamlet of Ennotville, and so started the library.  Through the years this building has housed a number of activities including a campus of the Mechanics Institute, a Sunday School; a community centre with dances and card parties; and a voting station for elections of local council, Ontario legislature and federal elections.  Available for rent for small family functions, meetings and celebrations. The library is a volunteer run organization which gratefully excepts donations.
