Update

The Ottawa Library is committed to serving our community and providing opportunities to everyone. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of the services we provide. To continue to provide services in a safe manner, we have made the following changes:

  • Library staff is required to wear masks in high traffic areas and when interacting with patrons.

  • Polycarbonate barriers have been erected at our Reference Desk, Circulation Desk, and Children's Department Desk.

  • Materials returning to the library or coming from other libraries are quarantined for 96 hours before they are shelved.

  • Sanitizer wipe stands have been placed next to the patron computer use areas.

  • Hand sanitizer is available at multiple locations through out the library.

  • Patron are restricted to every other computer.

  • Kid computers are unavailable.

  • The meeting room in the Reference Department is unavailable.

  • All in-person programs are cancelled at this time.

  • When possible, programs have transitioned to virtual platforms like Zoom or Facebook.

  • Staff regularly wipes down door knobs, keyboards, and other surfaces patron may interact with.

  • The water fountain has been disabled until a safe alternative has been installed.
