About the Library

Pioneer Park Community Library sprang to life as a stationary Bookmobile open three days a week, grew into a plaza storefront service in 1982, and in 1989 opened a new library in a complex with the Doon Pioneer Park Community Centre.

The library enjoys a mutually supportive relationship with the Doon Pioneer Park Community Association by participating in community events, partnering in programs, and receiving funds from the Association.

The people in the local neighbourhoods have successfully backed and volunteered time to projects such as the library as well as the community centre, fire station, heritage trails, and environmentally sensitive locales.
