Everything you didn’t know, but wanted to know, about the Ottawa Public Library

Speaker: Carol Pearson (OPCUG)

My bio is far removed from libraries.  I am not a librarian. This is a personal interest journey.  My interest came about as I was moving to Ottawa 7 years ago.  Moving heavy books is labor intensive and expensive.  I had read one of those simplify your life books, and one of their suggestions was to use Public Libraries.  So, I downsized my book collection, and got a library card.   

Shortly after my Ottawa arrival, I joined a club called the Ottawa Newcomers Club (shameless plug, an excellent club for women new to Ottawa in the last two years, newly widowed, or divorced. ONC).   For my own education, and in case other new ONC members wanted help, I enlisted another lady, a longtime Ottawa resident and frequent library user and we did a presentation to inform the newcomers about all the OPL has to offer.   The Ottawa Public Library is an incredible open source (😊) resource.
