Central Library
Mississauga Central Library
The Mississauga Central Library is located at 301 Burnhamthorpe Road West, adjacent to the Mississauga Civic Centre. It is the largest branch of the Mississauga Library System, containing four floors of materials and a further floor for silent study, and has functioned as the main library for the system since its opening in 1991.[3]
It was officially renamed to Hazel McCallion Central Library on 10 February 2021 (and affectionately nicknamed "Hazy Mac") in honour of the centennial birthday of the city's former mayor Hazel McCallion.[4][5]
Neighbourhood Branches
The Meadowvale Community Centre was renovated in July 2014 and re-opened in fall 2016 with a new library within the building.
Courtneypark Library shares the building with St. Marcellinus Secondary School.
