Hamilton Poetry Centre works to support and encourage the writing and appreciation of poetry.
The Hamilton Poetry Society was established in 1983 and is comprised of a friendly, welcoming group of writers who are interested in any sort of poem you might write. Bring a no longer than one-page poem to read aloud to the group. The workshop leader comments on the poem and then asks for comments from others.

The Westdale Branch was originally known as the Western Branch. The Branch opened in June 1957 and was renovated and expanded in 1998. The name was officially changed to Westdale in 1969. The Branch offers materials and programming for children, teens and adults.
The Westdale Branch also has the The Seed Library. The Seed Library is provided in partnership with the Hamilton Seed Library. Its lending process is very simple: visit the branch, pick the seeds that you would like to take and fill out the log sheet. There are no limits to how much you can take, all that is requested is that everyone respect that this is a community resource and that they only take a reasonable amount.
