Didn’t you know? October is Library month!

Throughout the month of October, Canadians across our country will be celebrating libraries. From building communities and transforming lives to inspiring learning, sparking curiosity, and connecting people, libraries are pillars of our community.


Every day this month, the Ottawa Public Library (OPL) will be showcasing a different service or item available to customers that they might not have known about. Follow OPL on Twitter and Facebook to find out more about what the Library can do for you.


“I don’t think people realize all the amazing things they can access and do for free at their public library,” said Tim Tierney, Chair of the Ottawa Public Library Board and Councillor for Ward 11 Beacon Hill – Cyrville. “We want to raise awareness of our services so that everyone in Ottawa takes advantage of their local library.”


For example, did you know you can stream music, movies and TV shows for free? Or that you can drop off your old batteries to get recycled at most branches? Maybe you weren’t aware that you can access free business services, where a specialist will meet with you one-on-one?
