Good morning Christine,

Thank you for your email and for taking the time to write on behalf of the Glebe Community Association.  I appreciate hearing from you.

Like you, I believe that libraries are an important part of our City.  I know that the Central Library team has been working hard to ensure that the new library will be a key part of our community.

As you know, on December 15, 2016, the Library Board will be presenting the preferred location for a new Central Library as well as the ranking of all sites that were looked at.  This has been the planned process since we undertook the Central Library project. You can read more about our work here:

Your feedback and thoughts have come at an ideal time.  By way of this email, I have shared your letter with the Chair of the Library Board, Councillor Tim Tierney, as well as the planning team, for their review.

Thank you again for writing.  All the best.


Jim Watson
City of Ottawa
