OPL-LAC Joint Facility - Come Together

(Theme 3 – Design, Theme10 – Sense of Place)

Organization: City of Ottawa

Timeline for Completion: 2024


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.

•The joint programs and services will make this a truly unique offering in Canada.

•The new facility will be a gathering place where people can connect to each other, their history, the resources they seek and the discoveries they make.

•It will be a modern facility that will respond to rapidly developing technology, growing customer expectations and changing demographics.

•Built to a minimum of LEED Gold certification and accessible by light-rail and multi-use pathways for cyclists and pedestrians, the facility will be part of building a sustainable Ottawa.
