The Bruce County Public Library board has heard the voices of concerned citizens. As of March 28, 2017, the Cargill branch will expand its hours from 9 hours to 15 hours a week.

At the March 15, 2017 Library Board meeting a staff report recommended that the Library Board keep the Cargill Branch open and reinstate the hours removed in March 2016.

The recommendation took into consideration the input from the community and the efforts that had been made by the community to advocate for use of the Cargill branch.

The board will continue to monitor activity at the branch and encourages and supports continual advocacy and activity from community members.

Melissa Legacy, Director of Library Services for Bruce County, says, "We look forward to continuing to provide library service to the residents of Cargill and hope to see increased use of the library. It is important for residents of small rural communities to have the opportunity to stay connected through the various services the library offers."
