The Perth Campus of Algonquin College is known as the Heritage Institute and well known for its trade programs. It is geared to architectural preservation and authentic restoration. Their restoration programs are designed and delivered by experts in their craft.
For all you genealogists this library is a hidden gem that you may not have thought of and many residents use the collection to do their genealogical research. They have the digitized land registry copy books, and the original indexes to Lanark County Land Registry books.
In the 1970s Librarian Connie Ebbs brought the land registry copy books to Lanark County as she was interested in the area’s history. Shortly after Anne McPhail came in as a young assistant and for the past number of years remains the head librarian of the college. At the Algonquin library the students have a comprehensive collection that compliments their program studies with many unique maps, books, periodicals and other resource materials. The general public is always welcome.
