Description: The Malton library was begun in 1948 as an association library, and in 1957 joined the Township of Toronto Public Library. As there was no branch large enough at first the community was served by the bookmobile. 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 had 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 a Centennial project, one of which was on Morningstar Drive in the Westwood subdivision of Malton. In 1977 the library moved to the new combined Library and Community Centre at 3540 Morningstar Drive, next to the little Centennial branch, which still serves the public as a day-care centre.
