OPL board denies request to release shortlist
Ottawa & Region

The Ottawa Public Library board has voted against releasing the shortlist of possible locations for a new central library in November, a month before a site is to be recommended.

The board approved a site evaluation process in the summer and later discussed behind closed doors the ranking of a dozen possible locations. Staff is now conducting detailed studies of an unknown number of shortlisted sites and will recommend in December a preferred location or locations for a stand-alone central branch and a potential OPL-Library and Archives Canada joint facility.
