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.

"A library is a gateway into a whole lot of other worlds. We always visit the local library when we’re in another town or another country, because they celebrate and reflect the community they’re in."
