Rosemount Library to Expand

Of interest to our neighbourhood, news from councillor Katherine Hobbs that our nearest city library will be getting funding for expansion.

[Rosemount Library in Ottawa]

Rosemount Library is 95 years old today! At a ceremony this afternoon I announced expansion plans for Rosemount and I wanted to share this early news with all in Kitchissippi. I requested that the Rosemount branch be listed in the budget as one of the priorities for renovation.

With the approval of the Ottawa Public Library 2014 budget this week, funding was included for Rosemount to be expanded. Please check back on my website as more information is forthcoming.

When you visit the library please take the time to fill out a Post-It note to say what you would like to see, so that your voice will go into the planning of the facility improvements.

Thanks and have a great weekend,

Katherine Hobbs

  1. While any idea of improving this library is welcome news, it should be pointed out that the funds are for “expansion plans” and *only* that. As The Citizen points out (http://blogs.ottawacitizen.com/2013/11/29/a-quickie-fact-check-on-the-expanding-rosemount-library/), the wording is misleading as there is no actual money set aside for the renovation itself.

  2. Thanks for pointing that out!
