About this Library

So what is there to discover?

In 1929, Henry E. Bodman and Harlow N. Davock, both of Detroit, chose this site and built a log cabin. They presented the cabin to Tobermory as the public library. The cabin measured 24 x 36 feet and was built from rocks and logs. The ceiling was made from British Columbia Fir, two inches thick, tongued and grooved and supported by old fashioned cross beams. The cabin was furnished and a large fireplace of rugged stone was built at one end. The building became a free public library with Mr. Weir Grieve as its first librarian.
