Looking forward to reading I am a Truck. Very intriguing title. Same as Ferguson's 419: no idea what it's about! #LibraryMoments

Can't wait to add the Giller Finalists to my holds at OPL !

Discovering new books to check out, naturally. Another five with the Giller finalists!

Feel lucky to be able to request these books from OPL and pick them up at my Sunnyside Branch. Just learned at the Ottawa International Writers Festival this week that in Canada when you take a book out of the library the author gets a small amount of money as a result. Good to know!

What a treat to have the Giller finalists in this city, and the books available in the OPL!

It would be amazing to see these finalists in person! And for #MyLibraryMoment I love visiting the Rosemount location each week and seeing the beautiful Carnegie design.

Putting books on hold and getting the notice to pick them up at my branch couldn't be any easier. I feel very fortunate to hear about a book or movie and to look it up on the library website. The kid in me loves watching the conveyor belt as the books come back through the return slot.

The Giller Prize is one of the most anticipated literary awards in Canada.

There is NO better time than hanging in the aisles of any OPL branch :)

I'd love to see the Giller Prize being awarded! This is the first year that I will have read all the short-listed novels. So far I've read I am a Truck, Son of a Trickster, and Bellevue Square. I' m reading Minds of Winter now. My favourite #LibraryMoments was when I realized that I could take courses on Lynda.com for free through the Ottawa Public Library. I use it all the time now for photography courses and professional development courses.
