     Proceeds from the book fair are used to enhance the library system.  For more information, please call 519-845-3324.   Library Headquarters is located on 787 Broadway St., Wyoming, behind the County of Lambton Administration Building.

    Library Headquarters provides the behind-the scenes services to Lambton County's 26 branch libraries.  This includes book selection and ordering, cataloguing, inter-library loans, interbranch requests, exchanges of materials from one branch to another, courier services, service to long-term care homes as well as automated systems maintenance.
