Self-serve locations

Our self-serve book shelves offer great variety and prices with the added bonus of flexibility. Each shelf is stocked with titles picked by our savvy volunteers, and offers you the convenience of being able to grab and go.

Books on our self-serve shelves are already priced, and can be paid for at the Circulation Desk or Service Hub of that particular branch. All self-serve shelves are open during regular library hours (see the Ottawa Public Library website for individual branch hours).

Find the self-serve shelf in a library branch close to you below. We receive new donations throughout the week, so visit often for the best finds.
