Our Partners

In 1998 the Lakefield Public Library became involved in supporting the children’s tent event during the Lakefield Literary Festival.

In 2001 the Village of Lakefield was amalgamated with Smith Ennismore Township to become the Township of Smith-Ennismore-Lakefield.  Our library became the Smith-Ennismore-Lakefield Public Library at that time and our support of the Festival continued.

In 2013 the Township changed its name to the Township of Selwyn and our library became known as the Selwyn Public Library.

In 2015 we made our assiciation with the Lakefield Literary Festival official with the signing of a partnership agreement between the Library board and the Festival directors.  This partnership is specifically for the Selwyn Library staff, under the umbrella of the Lakefield Literary Festival committee, to work cooperatively to present  a children’s event on the Saturday morning of the Literary Festival weekend.
