We have received new information and upon review will no longer be able to lend materials, or accept returned items. The library drop box will be locked for the duration. No late fees will be charged.

Staff will still be present in the library and will be monitoring phone, e-mail, and Facebook messages. If you need assistance accessing our free e-books or any of our other online resources, please contact us.

We truly regret this action, but our greatest concern is for the well-being of our patrons and our community at large. We thank everyone for their patience and cooperation.


Due to the spread of the Covid-19 virus, we will be closed effective March 16 to April 6th. During this closure staff will still be working and present in the library Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 1 to 5 pm and Wednesday morning from 9 am to 1 pm.  

Inter-library loan service is suspended during this time.  Please note that all Ottawa museums and the Aquatarium are closed so we will not be lending passes at this time. We are providing links on our website and facebook pages for online resources for children.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation in responding to the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
