The Ottawa Public Library (OPL) is holding initial discussions on a Central Library in Ottawa. I would like to invite you to provide input into the spaces and services of the future building.
There are three ways you can get involved.
1. Attend a public session Tuesday, March 31, 2015
7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
City Hall, Jean Pigott Place
110 Laurier Avenue West
*To register for the public session, go to www.OttawaCentralLibrary.ca. Please note that spaces are limited.
2. Participate in an online forum Watch a live webcast of the public session presentations at www.OttawaCentralLibrary.ca and add your comments online through April 6, 2015.
3. Visit the Main branch Visit the Main branch at 120 Metcalfe St. from March 21-27, 2015 to write your comments on an idea board located on the Ground floor. Children can also participate by providing input on a board available in the Children’s area on the second floor.
Public input will be used to shape the functional building requirements (spaces and services) of a Central Library. The results of the public input will be made available through a report to the Ottawa Public Library Board in June 2015.
I strongly encourage you to take part in these initial discussions, as we are trying to build a library of the future for all of Ottawa to enjoy. Of course you can always contact my office with any comments, suggestions or questions! email@example.com or 613-580-2478.
