Petitcodiac was incorporated as a village in 1966. Before 1982, the village relied on a bookmobile that traveled to the area every three weeks. With assistance from the local women's friendship organization, Beta Sigma Phi, the community rallied to establish its own library in 1982. The Bank of Nova Scotia had vacated its historic brick building, allowing the library to establish itself in this unique home. Summers are a busy place at the library. The summer reading program is very popular with local children.
