The original West End Library, 823 Ellice Avenue, was officially opened on October 14, 1966 by Mayor Stephen Juba. It served as a bookmobile depot as well as a public library. A new 6,000 sq. ft. West End Library opened on February 20, 2009, with almost double the size of the old facility.

On July 31, 2018, West End Library was renamed Harvey Smith Library in honour of late Councillor Harvey Smith. The longtime West End resident, who died in March, 2017, spent 22 years as a city councillor.
