Come Together

Welcome to your new Ottawa Public Library and Library and Archives Canada Joint Facility. The result of unprecedented partnerships and community engagement, the story of this groundbreaking project is about two major public institutions coming together to build a place where—when its doors open in 2024—Ottawa residents, Canadians and visitors from around the world will come together to connect to learn, discover, and create.

"You can learn about anything at the library. I built my garage from the ground up based on library books. It makes me happy that all of us, no matter our means or background, share all of the resources available at the library."
