Branch features

History naturally comes alive and the community is involved at the Carp branch - the Library is located in a former Canadian Forces base building at the site of the Diefenbunker Cold War Museum! The West Carleton Garden Club maintains a Reading Garden - a peaceful oasis to enjoy some great literature checked out from the Ottawa Public Library. Please note the well water samples are not being accepted at this time. Sorry for the inconvenience.
