Welcome to the Weston Family Library!

Click here to link to our online catalogue or to log in to your library account.

Our collection consists of over 10,000 books and magazine titles. We have resources to suit every interest and skill level from the novice to the Master Gardener. From flower arranging to gardening to plant taxonomy – we can help you find it!

Only current Garden and Book Lovers members enjoy borrowing privileges, but everyone is welcome to browse and use our collection in the Library. We have comfortable seating, great views of the Pollinator Garden and urban beehives, and four public computers for all to enjoy.

A Book Lovers membership is only $10 for a full year, with the proceeds directly supporting your Library in the Garden.
