Welcome High School Students!


Beat exam stress in the comfort of the library.  Questions? Ask library staff—we’re here to help.  Get caught studying in any OPL branch between January 15-31 and you might be rewarded with a treat! This year, we also will also be giving away one twenty-five dollar Chapters gift card, as a prize to an Instagram contest we will run during our Teen Exam Cram.

 We have partnered with Ottawa Therapy Dogs to offer dog therapy programs at various branches during the Teen Exam Cram period.  You will have the chance to meet and interact with therapy dogs, and to de-stress while you are studying for your exams.

Ottawa Therapy Dogs participating branches:

Ruth E. Dickinson branch (100 Malvern Drive)

Alta Vista branch (2516 Alta Vista Drive)

In addition to helping teens, the dog therapy programs are available to all individuals who might be experiencing stress, anxiety, or who are going through a difficult time. OPL customers can visit one of the participating branches to experience firsthand how meeting a new furry friend can help them.

Best of luck on your exams!
