Have your say to help shape decisions on facilities planning. From now to September 15, the Ottawa Public Library (OPL) is conducting a public consultation to confirm that the draft Facilities Framework reflects the needs of the Ottawa community.
OPL invites Ottawa residents to share their thoughts and views on access to Library branch services by completing a survey available in English and French, online and in branches. Your input will help finalize the Framework and make decisions regarding future OPL facilities.
The Framework will serve as a roadmap to ensure more equitable coverage to Library branch services across Ottawa. It will also allow OPL to identify gaps in terms of access to Library branches and to determine how we plan to address these gaps.
It is essential that this new Facilities Framework reflects the diverse needs and composition of the Ottawa community.
Your participation in the survey is important.
Spare some time to:
- Watch an online presentation outlining the key points of the Draft Facilities Framework or
- Read the Draft Facilities Framework, which is available online, in English and French. You can also request a hard copy at your home branch.
- Complete the survey online or ask for a hard copy and drop it off at a branch once completed.
Bring your questions on Tuesday, August 23, to a bilingual virtual “open house” session from 7 pm to 8 pm. It is another opportunity for you to better understand the approach and the intended use of the Facilities Framework. Register for the session on Eventbrite and the meeting link will be sent to you by email.
Note that participants will be advised to watch the online presentation or review the framework prior to joining the virtual open house.
Questions related to the Facilities Framework Public Engagement can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your feedback and participation!
