Concession Branch

Concession Branch was first named the Mountain Branch. It opened in 1920 and was the first branch on Hamilton Mountain. After occupying storefront locations for a number of years, a permanent building at the corner of Concession Street and Cliff Avenue was opened in 1949. In 1991, the building was demolished and the current building opened in early 1992.

The branch offers materials and programming for children, teens and adults.

The Concession Branch is located at 565 Concession St, Hamilton ON L8V 1A8
