  • UPDATE – Provincial announcement regarding public libraries and pickups

    15/05/2020

    We greatly appreciate the Province’s announcement that as part of the first phase of reopening libraries can begin to offer pick-up or delivery of materials. 

    There is a lot of work to do be able to offer these services while ensuring the safety of our employees and our customers. Our plan to resume our physical services needs to account for physical distancing requirements, provision of personal protective equipment, enhanced sanitary controls, and new protocols for employees and customers. We are working on offering holds pick-ups as soon as we can safely do so.  

    We will be communicating all new developments in our service offering to you on all our platforms, as soon as we have updates. 

    Thank you for your patience as we move through this rapidly evolving situation. 

    ******

    OPL branches, Bookmobile stops and Homebound delivery services are closed until June 30, 2020. The closure is in response to advice from Ottawa Public Health (OPH) with regards to COVID-19 (coronavirus) for the health and safety of our community. We will continue to monitor the situation and reassess as the situation evolves. Currently, please note:  

    • Due dates for all currently checked out materials have been extended and late fees suspended.
    • Book drops are not available since branches are closed. Hold on to OPL items and return them when branches reopen. 
    • Holds are suspended, and pick up expiry dates extended. This includes interlibrary loans (ILL).
    • Meeting room rentals are cancelled, and fees are being refunded; and
    • Computer bookings, programs, events and outreach activities are cancelled.

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas --- Teen Book Review

23/05/2017

Submitted on behalf of NC TAG Member Catherin L. 

His betrayal is engraved in her mind. Feyre has returned to the Spring Court determined to get her revenge on its High Lord, Tamlin. As she pretends to be the girl he fell in love with, she spies on him and his allies - gathering information that could change the course of the unavoidable and upcoming war. With the future of Prythian at stake, Feyre must decide which of the cunning, ruthless and glorious High Lords can be trusted and hunt for allies in the most unexpected places.

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas is the third and final novel of the fantasy trilogy A Court of Thorns and Roses series. This conclusion was nothing short of spellbinding. The plot was heart stopping, action packed and at times brought out tears. The characters are beautiful, witty and dynamic. Overall, it was a mesmerizing and enchanting read.

I give A Court of Wings and Ruin a 4.5 out of 5 would recommend this series to readers of the fantasy genre. It is truly a wondrous tale which you will surly love.

This novel is recommended for ages 13+.

Note: The first novel of this series is A Court of Thorns and Roses, followed by A Court of Mist and Fury and concluding the trilogy is A Court of Wings and Ruin. Don't be intimidated by the length of these books - they are quite easy reads.
