Administrative history

The Peterborough Law Association was incorporated in 1879 in order to enable the local bar to establish and receive grants from the law society for a law library in the court house. The local bar had a library and rented a library from a local firm for $12.00 a year. In 1893 the Association paid the firm $22.00 and removed their library from the firm. This left the library depleted and hence the application for grants from the Law Society. The Law Association in Peterborough developed committees to look after the library and had a chief librarian. It celebrated its one hundredth anniversary in 1979 with a dinner and notable guest speaker. Since its inception the Peterborough Law Association has received innumerable gifts and donations in the form of books and paintings such as books of Sir John Beverly Robinson from his son Christopher Robinson Q.C. and a set of Supreme Court Reports from USA President Calvin Coolidge.
