Do you care about Rosemount - YOUR COMMUNITY LIBRARY? Then please follow the activities of READ through our email list as well as facebook group, twitter and our website.

Rosemount Library is the second most used library per sq/ft of all 32 branches AND has been the #1 branch priority for the Ottawa Public Library for three years. Yet, other libraries lower on the list have had expansions and redevelopments. Now is a critical time for Rosemount, especially with all the surrounding development that is occurring.

READ (Rosemount Expansion and Development) is a group of local volunteers throughout Rosemount's catchment area that want to help expand and redevelopment Rosemount Library. We are working closely with library staff and with politicians at various levels of government on this issue.

We would like YOU to follow our occasional email updates and our social media presence so that you know what's going on. We may need, in rare instances, to engage library users in advocacy or planning and this is the way to find out.

Path Opening

posted Oct 3, 2015, 4:38 PM by Westboro Beach Community Association [ updated Oct 2, 2016, 9:24 AM ]

The new path located beside the Centre Jules Leger was officially opened on Saturday, September 19th by Councillor Jeff Leiper and MPP Yasir Naqvi. The path will give Selby and Ferndale residents direct access to Beechgrove and the CBC path to the Transitway. The WBCA has been working on getting the path re-opened to give better access to transit for at least 15 years. Special thanks to our MPP who worked with the Ministry of Education to allow the path to be built on land adjacent to the school. Funding for the path came from the City of Ottawa's Transportation Master Plan.
