Interested in joining SmartLibrary? It’s easy to get started.

If you’re interested in using this service, you’ll need a SmartLibrary Card, which is available from any branch of the Ottawa Public Library. You are welcome to search the catalogues of partner libraries but may only borrow directly from the libraries listed in the table below. To obtain items from other partner libraries, you can place an inter-library loan request.
