Step 1: Contactless services inside most open branches

17/06/2021

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.

Tech Café: Options for Obtaining Assistive Devices and Technology

There are various options for assistive devices. We’ll explore the pros and cons of assistive software and hardware produced and sold on the open market. We’ll also discuss possible options for customized assistive devices that you can make or have made at cost, working with nonprofit organizations. We will demonstrate some of these.

Ottawa Public Library is partnering with Ottawa Foyers Partage to offer these programs.
