We’re excited to announce that The Friends’ Bookshop has moved to a brand new location inside the Main Branch of the Ottawa Public Library.

This new location will offer our customers greater accessibility, updated product selection, and will be open for business during all opening hours of the Main Branch.

Because our new space will be available throughout the day, we will also be discontinuing the Book Bar Sale that occurs in the branch lobby during lunch on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

We look forward to welcoming you in our new space!

How to Find Us

The Friends’ Bookshop is now located on the ground level of the Main Branch of the Ottawa Public Library adjacent to magazine circulation.

To visit the new Friends’ Bookshop, please enter through the main doors of the Main Branch and turn left past the staircase near the Service Hub (main desk).
