August Column

Dear neighbours, 

I hope you are enjoying the best that summer in Ottawa has to offer from its beaches, splash pads and wading pools to its festivals, events and movie in the park nights.

Carlingwood Library Stroller Parking Canopy

Following renovations to the Carlingwood Library the decision was made to restrict the use of strollers inside the branch. This was not an easy decision for staff but it was made in an effort to help alleviate wet, muddy floors and also to ensure a pleasant library experience for everyone.  Parents were naturally concerned about leaving their strollers outside unattended with no place to lock them up.  We have managed to address both concerns and the Carlingwood Library now has a brand new Stroller Parking area.  The canopy allows parents and caregivers to park their strollers securely and out of the rain and snow. The Library also provides locks which can be borrowed to ensure their "wheels" are ready and available when it is time to head home!   Thank you to Library staff and visitors to the library for their patience and understanding throughout the renovations and construction.   



Movie in the park
On August 28 I am hosting my annual Movie in the Park in Lakeview Park at 62 Horner Drive. We will be screening “Kung Fu Panda” and serving juice, popcorn, and water.

Please bring blankets and a healthy snack and remember to keep the park clean and bring home
anything you bring into the park.

The movie will start at sunset (approximately 7:45 pm) I am looking forward to seeing you all there.
