Meadowvale Community Centre and Library is a library branch under the Mississauga Library System located in Meadowvale neighbourhood of Mississauga, Ontario. The Meadowvale Community Centre was officially opened in January 1982; the original building was 43,500 square feet, including a pool, fitness centre with racquetball and squash courts, meetings rooms (including a large auditorium) and lobby space.[3]

In 2014, the community centre was closed for revelopment by the City of Mississauga; the redevelopment of Meadowvale Community Centre was a priority for the City with a budget of $1 (CDN). The demolition and rebuilding of the centre was aimed to improve public accessibility, update mechanical systems, enlarge program space and add a therapeutic pool in response to the changing recreational needs of the community. Redevelopment was also an opportunity to incorporate the Meadowvale Library into this expanding facility.[4]

The Meadowvale Community Centre and Library was re-opened in September 2016 after 2 years of constructions, it is the City of Mississauga's first Community Centre to pursue a LEED certification (silver).[5]
