As the population of Peel increased and court services expanded to five separate locations in Peel, the library continued to provide service to lawyers. In 2000, court space in Peel was consolidated and the library moved into the new A. Grenville and William Davis Courthouse on land adjacent to the previous General Division courthouse.
