Step 1: Contactless services inside most open branches


There are contactless services inside most of our 31 open branches, with strict capacity limits in place, as of June 14, 2021, except at Metcalfe Village, Orléans and Rosemount. This means:

  • Pick up holds and check them out at self-checkout stations.
  • Return borrowed items to book drops anytime.
  • Access to PCs, Chromebooks, and printing, where these are available.
  • No other services: no browsing, no washroom access.
  • Mask-wearing remains mandatory inside, and outside in line.

For details, go to Current Branch Services.

Connecting to Nature - Backyards and Beyond

Learn more about urban wildlife and some of the things they do. Too often we take for granted the interesting wildlife we share our spaces with. The Ottawa-Carleton Wildlife Centre will give a presentation that looks at some of the interesting mammals that live in the Ottawa area and will share lots of great videos, pictures and stories.

For over 30 years the Ottawa-Carleton Wildlife Centre has been working on behalf of wildlife. They are committed to educating people about wildlife and helping to foster an appreciation for the natural world and the important role all species play in a healthy ecosystem.   

Ages 7-12, but all ages welcome!


Registrants will receive an additional email with the Zoom link ahead of the program.
