Greater Madawaska Public Library

Welcome to the Greater Madawaska Public Library. It was founded as the Bagot & Blythfied Public Library in 1978 by four ladies dedicated to literacy at the request of the then reeve, Bob Knight. Since then it has evolved, as amalgamations occurred, to the Bagot, Blythfield and Brougham Public Library and finally in 2001 to the Greater Madawaska Public Library. It has moved locations over the years and is presently located in St. Joseph's Separate School, 12629 Lanark Road, Calabogie.

Local History Digitization

It's no secret that the municipality now known as Greater Madawaska is rich in history. There are many stories to tell and photos to share of the people and places from the geographic townships of Bagot, Blythfield, Griffith and Matawatchan. In February 2011 the Greater Madawaska Public Library pursued a local history project with the focus being on a digital collection. With funding from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, the project came to life in November 2011 and can now be viewed as part of the Our Ontario digital collection at:
