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.

The Future of Ottawa’s Rosemount Library is NOW!

The revitalization of the Rosemount Branch of the Ottawa Public Library (OPL) begins this Wednesday evening, October 3rd, from 6 to 8 pm at the Rosemount Branch Library (18 Rosemount Ave). The community is invited to meet with the architects to provide input at an OPEN HOUSE. The Rosemount Expansion and Development (READ) community group believes now is the crucial time for the Kitchissippi community to have their say. The revitalization is urgently needed to ensure that Rosemount will meet the demands of the vibrant, growing Kitchissippi neighbourhood. READ’s hope is that the library will be redesigned so it becomes an innovative, interactive and integrated community hub.

Rosemount Library Update

Subject: Rosemount Library Renovation – READ Response

Good evening,

We are writing to update the community associations in the Rosemount catchment area on the status of the library’s redevelopment.

In October, the OPL Board made the unfortunate decision to renovate rather than expand the Rosemount Library. READ is disappointed with this result. In our view, the community is already underserved and a superficial renovation does not address the community’s current and future needs.

Attached you’ll find READ’s statement in response to the OPL’s decision. We encourage you to share it with your contacts and association members.
