NotesThe Castle Lending Library appears to have been established in Montreal in about 1930, when it was originally located in the Castle Inn Apartments at 5249 Park Avenue. By 1932, the Lending Library was split between the original address on Park Avenue and a secondary location at #2 5622 Sherbrooke West. By 1943, the Castle Lending Library was located on 368 Bernard West, and was run by Mrs. R. Ebner. The Library moved back to the Sherbrooke West address shortly thereafter, where it was still located in 1960. It appears to have been closed sometime shortly after 1960.
