The Ottawa Library system has been closed since Monday for a computer upgrade. An extension of the closure is announced as below.
The Ottawa Public Library (OPL) will remain closed on Wednesday, May 5 and Thursday, May 6 because of technical challenges beyond our control related to a recent computer system upgrade.
All OPL branches will open on Friday, May 7 as usual.
Q. Why does OPL need to remain closed on May 5 and May 6?
A. We encountered unforeseen challenges while transferring data from the old system to the new system which means that the new system will not be operating until late in the day on May 6. OPL staff cannot check in or check out items for Library users until the new system is operating.
Q. When will the Library reopen?
A. All OPL branches will open on Friday, May 7 as usual.
