"Libraries are starting places for the adventure of learning that can go on whatever one's vocation and location in life. Reading is an adventure like that of discovery itself. Libraries are our base camp." - James H. Billington
The Paris Branch at 12 William Street, Paris, Ontario, was founded as a public library in 1902 with a grant from Andrew Carnegie. Visitors to the branch can see many original Carnegie architectural features including oval windows, ornamental cornices and the original exterior façade which faces William Street.
