Unique Features

The internationally famous author of Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maud Montgomery lived in the neighbouring hamlet of Leaskdale from 1911 to 1926. Montgomery regularly visited Zephyr with her husband the Rev. Ewan MacDonald, minister of Zephyr's St. Paul's Presbyterian Church. While living in the Leaskdale manse, Montgomery wrote many of her books. The Zephyr Public Library is proud to have many Montgomery titles on its shelves in the children's and adult sections. Also available are the four volumes of The Selected Journals of L.M. Montgomery. Some of Montgomery's books are first editions. Additional titles are available at the Uxbridge Library.
