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.   


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.

Sunnyside branch: Closure


Sunnyside branch will be closed December 8 to 10, for maintenance. The bookdrop will remain open. Regular service will resume Saturday, December 11 at 10 am.  

Bookmobile stop at Rideauview Community Centre will change temporarily to the Riverview Park & Ride


As of November 24, the Bookmobile stop at Rideauview Community Centre will temporarily change locations to the Riverview Park & Ride at 650 Earl Armstrong Road until further notice. To minimize disruption for that location’s Bookmobile users the schedule will remain the same – 2:15pm to 5:30pm and 6:30pm to 8:00pm each Wednesday.
