Administrative history

Coquitlam's Library was originally housed in Centennial School before a 1976 referendum approved the development of a more extensive library system. Consequently, the Coquitlam Public Library opened in 1978 on Ridgeway Avenue. Branches in Burquitlam and the Lincoln Centre soon followed but they were closed when the main Poirier Street branch opened in 1989. The City Centre Branch was located on the ground floor of the new City Hall from the late 1990s until 2012, when it was relocated to 1169 Pinetree Way.

Custodial history

The photographic slides were donated to the library as part of the Coquitlam 100 Years project.

Scope and content

The collection consists of photographic slides of Coquitlam and surrounding municipalities.
