  • OPL branches closed

    OPL branches, Bookmobile stops and Homebound delivery services are closed until further notice. The closure is in response to advice from Ottawa Public Health (OPH) with regards to COVID-19 (coronavirus) for the health and safety of our community. We will continue to monitor the situation and reassess as the situation evolves. Currently, please note:  

    • Due dates for all currently checked out materials have been extended and late fees suspended.
    • Book drops are not available since branches are closed. Hold on to OPL items and return them when branches reopen. 
    • Holds are suspended, and pick up expiry dates extended. This includes interlibrary loans (ILL).
    • Meeting room rentals are cancelled, and fees are being refunded; and
    • Computer bookings, programs, events and outreach activities are cancelled.
    • Expired cards, or those about to expire, have been extended.

L’âge dans les mots : lire et échanger


Joignez-vous à un groupe de lecture et de discussion pour explorer l’expérience des adultes plus âgés telle qu’elle est dépeinte dans une large gamme d’ouvrages écrits.

Le groupe se rencontre une fois par semaine pendant six semaines pour discuter de poèmes, de nouvelles, d’essais et de courts extraits de romans et de mémoires qui ont tous un lien avec l’expérience de vieillir. Les textes seront fournis.

Il y a une limite de 10 personnes par session; aucune nouvelle inscription ne sera acceptée après la deuxième session.
