Rosemount Revitalization Open House – December 13, 15

Invitation: Open House for Rosemount Revitalization

Ottawa Public Library invites members of the community, partners, and customers of OPL’s Rosemount branch to view preliminary designs for revitalizing and improving the 100-year-old branch.

There will be two Open House sessions at the Rosemount branch:

  • Thursday, December 13 from 6 to 8 pm
  • Saturday, December 15 from noon to 2 pm

The branch is located at 18 Rosemount Avenue. Registration is not required.

OPL is working with local design firm +VG Architects, who have been engaged to conduct the revitalization, including public consultation to ensure community needs are met. The preliminary designs reflect input and suggestions from the public, further to consultation online and in person in October 2018. Members of the public will be able to meet the architects and OPL staff, ask questions and share comments about the most recent design.

Designs will be finalized in the coming months and presented to the OPL Board in February.

Construction work is expected to begin in spring 2019 for completion in late 2019 during which Library services will be provided at a nearby temporary location.
