Regular hours resumed Sept. 7, 2021


Ottawa Public Library has returned to regular pre-pandemic hours at most branches as of September 7, 2021 — including Sunday hours at 10 branches and InfoService. Hours are posted at branch entrances and on the Hours and location page of the OPL website.   


Alta Vista branch: Return to regular hours and service


Alta Vista branch has returned to regular service and hours on October 22, 2021.

Overdrive: Issues with older Apple devices or browsers


Recent changes by Overdrive and Libby have impacted compatibility with older versions of Apple's mobile and desktop operating systems. Those who use older Apple devices (Mac computers running lower than macOS 10.12.1 and iPhones/iPads running iOS 9) may have trouble using the OverDrive desktop or mobile apps, while Libby is no longer supported on iPhones and iPads running iOS 9.

Carlingwood branch: Elevator out of service


The elevator at Carlingwood branch is currently out of service.
