The Golden Tickets are back for Library Month

This image shows OPL's Golden Ticket and the fanny pack.

Hey Ottawa! October is Library Month and the Golden Tickets are back!


This month, we invite you to discover all that your Ottawa Public Library has to offer. You can borrow Express eBooks and musical instruments: you can stream classic movies or learn a new language online; you can read full-text daily newspapers and borrow the latest video games. We have it all and everything in between – for you, for everyone, for free.


Since it’s Library Month, we are making OPL even more fun than usual by hiding and giving away Golden Tickets in all of our branches and across the city!


So visit the branch nearest to you and keep your eyes peeled. Every Golden Ticket is redeemable for a beautiful, locally handmade fanny pack by EcoEquitable!


Follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for clues and more!


We hope to see you in our branches and around the city throughout October – Library Month!
