Champlain Park Hockey Pool – Reminder

Please get your picks for the hockey pool in to Nick by this Thursday evening. See the hockey pool post for details.

Rink Finally Iced Up!

Just a quick note to say the rink is now iced up and fully open as of this morning. We have three areas – the hockey rink inside the boards, a circular skating loop rink outside the boards and a “puddle” rink over the baseball diamond.

Thanks to the team of volunteers for getting it into shape, lead by Matt.

Be aware of the city COVID rules, rough summary: masks required and distancing (crowd limits too) and no team sports.

Rosemount Library Update

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 <kelly.sirett@biblioottawalibrary.ca>

Hello,

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

Christmas Tree Habitat

Wondering what to do with your Christmas tree? Instead of putting it out at the curb, “plant” it in your yard where it will become winter habitat for birds and other gentle creatures. In the spring move it to your compost pile, or recycle at that point. Keeps the good cheer close at hand too.
