The second phase of the Inspire555 series to engage the public and gather input on the new Ottawa Public Library (OPL) and Library and Archives Canada (LAC) joint facility is online at Inspire555.ca until June 5.
In a short questionnaire on Spaces and Relationships, Canadians are invited to share their thoughts and comments with the architects regarding the location of major program spaces and uses within the building.
The questionnaire is part of a year-long local and national engagement process to inspire the design of an iconic facility destined to become an attraction for all visitors to the Capital and a community gathering place.
Set to open in 2024, the joint facility will deliver a rich customer experience through the Ottawa Public Library’s Central Library and Library and Archives Canada’s public services, exhibitions and events, which showcase Canada’s heritage. The joint programming and services will make this a truly unique offering in Canada.
