The Ottawa Public Library (OPL) released a report today with its recommendations on the Ottawa Central Library project.
The report recommends collaboration between the OPL and Library and Archives Canada (LAC), and that the two organizations should share the building. A collaborative agreement would allow the OPL and LAC to offer a broader range of value-added services to their clients.
This report will be considered by the OPL Board on January 31, 2017, and by Ottawa City Council on February 8, 2017. If the proposed collaboration between the OPL and LAC is approved by these two bodies, the Government of Canada is expected to decide by the spring of 2017 whether or not to proceed with the joint project.
