Friends of the Ottawa Public Library Association (FOPLA)

We raise money for the Ottawa Public Library through our bookstores, our monthly Mammoth Book Sales and through membership dues.

Every year, OPL has a wish list in which they submit to FOPLA a list of requests for various branches across the city.

Here are some of the items we have contributed funds for:
- $6,500 worth of e-books
- refreshed furniture for the expanded Constance Bay Branch
- completed shelving renewal project at the Vanier Branch
- shelving to improve parenting space at Cumberland Branch
- new display and shelving units for DVDs at Carlingwood and Greenboro Branches
- redid the shelving in the children's area at the Carp Branch

The more money we raise, the more money we can give to OPL to improve their services for the Ottawa community. Libraries are a vital part of any community and we believe that strong libraries equal strong communities.
