A message from the new librarian to our neighbourhood (was addressed to the CPCA board, but the general parts are worth repeating here). By the way, I was there yesterday dropping off a book. They now have a desk just inside the front door, with a plexiglass shield, where they will take your returned books or give you books you’ve ordered online.
Subject: Update from the Rosemount branch of the OPL

From: Sirett, Kelly <firstname.lastname@example.org>
My name is Kelly Sirett and I’m the new Supervising Librarian at the Rosemount branch of the Ottawa Public Library. […]
I’m writing to introduce myself, provide an update on the Rosemount branch, and to connect with your organization. To tell you a bit about myself, I have been working at the OPL since 2014, most recently as the Coordinator of the Sunnyside branch in Old Ottawa South. I live in Hintonburg, love this neighbourhood and am excited to be working in this community.
As you may know, the Rosemount branch temporarily closed its permanent location (at 18 Rosemount) in Spring 2019 for major renovations. During the renovations, the branch operated out of a temporary location on Wellington Street. Like for everyone else, COVID has caused to major changes in Library services. Since July, Rosemount has been offering holds pick up and returns in a variety of ways, depending on provincial regulations. We moved back into our permanent location at 18 Rosemount in early December. While we are operating only on the first floor of the building & with limited services (currently curbside holds pick up and returns), staff are very happy to be back “home”! For more information on current services and hours, please visit our website: https://biblioottawalibrary.ca/en
[…] Also, don’t hesitate to reach out to me at any time with any library-related questions or simply to connect.
Looking forward to connecting with you,
