Branch features

History naturally comes alive and the community is involved at the Carp branch - the Library is located in a former Canadian Forces base building at the site of the Diefenbunker Cold War Museum! The West Carleton Garden Club maintains a Reading Garden - a peaceful oasis to enjoy some great literature checked out from the Ottawa Public Library. You may also drop off well water samples for testing on Tuesdays between 10:00 a.m. and 8:30 p.m.
