Description: Black and white glossy photograph of the interior of Malton community centre. There is a square information desk (composed of four tables which form a square) behind which there is a man dressed in a dark coloured sports jacket. There are a couple of people asking him questions. There are people sitting and standing in the background.

In July 1962, the Malton branch of Toronto Township Library opened in leased quarters in the Patchett Building at 2885 Derry Road East. The branch then has an average circulation of 2,200 books a month, and was open for 12 hours a week. By March 1967 the Toronto Township Council had committed to building three new Branches as Centennial project, one on Morningstar Drive in the Westwood subdivision of Malton, one in Serson Park in Lakeview and the third in the Whiteoaks are of Lorne Park.

On October 15, 1967, the Hon. William G. Davis, Minister of Education, cut the ribbon to officially open the Malton Centennial Library. However, the branch would eventually outgrow the building and on February 5, 1977, the new combined Community Centre and Library opened next door to the Malton Centennial branch at 3540 Morningstar Drive.
