    Do you need help with your tax return? If you have a modest income and a simple tax situation, trained volunteers may be able to complete your tax return for you for free. Ottawa Public Library is partnering with the Canada Revenue Agency to offer free tax preparation through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program.

    The Ruth E. Dickinson branch will be offering free tax clinics in English on a first-come, first-served basis. 

    Before arriving at the free tax clinics, you must verify whether you meet the Canada Revenue Agency’s eligibility criteria and ensure to bring the appropriate documentation with you. Our volunteers will not process self-employment or business taxes. 

    Click on the "View full schedule" button on the right of the screen to see when the clinics will be offered.

    In this informal self-guided program, adults are invited to discuss their favourite books and genres in a relaxed atmosphere. Unlike traditional book clubs, no specific book is selected for each session. This is an opportunity for people to get together to talk about what they are reading and inspire each other's future reads.

    Do you love to write? Is writing the air you breathe, or is there ink in your veins?

    The Stittsville Creative Writing Group is a collection of people who love to write.

    We meet weekly to read from text we have written on our own time during the previous week, and engage in other writing activities.

    This is not a class on writing, or a workshop for manuscripts. Instead, we are people who love to write and share our works. 

    There are those who mostly listen rather than write, those who write prolifically but only share with the group, and a broad spectrum in between.

    If your interest is in the love of writing, this group may be for you.

    The Stittsville Creative Writing Group, is an OPL Program which has been producing stories, novels, laughs and tragedy, heroes, villains, poetry, and pretty much whatever we feel like writing, for the last 14 years. We invite you to come into our meeting, this one night, as a guest to hear some of our tales. You will be listening to published authors and talented writers. It may be a piece in progress, a polished story, or a flight of fancy. You won't know unless you show up. This program will be taking place in the large program room. 

    Registration recommended. Drop-ins welcome!
