Fact a day 3: Rideau Branch of Ottawa Public Library

The branch received its heritage designation on Heritage Day, Febrary 15th, 1998. Incorporated into the protection under the status were the oak shelves around the perimeter of the main reading room. Originally, there were free-standing oak shelves in the centre of this room as well; these were removed and replaced with metal shelving in a 1982 renovation.
