Ottawa Branch Meetings

Starting in September, Ottawa Branch will hold its regular monthly meetings in the new City of Ottawa Central Archives at 100 Tallwood Drive. The meeting schedule can be found at http://ogsottawa.on.ca/?cat=6. September will feature Phil Donnelly speaking about his book and a program titled Heritage Tier worker which encourages and helps people write their stories. Phil was scheduled earlier this year but we were locked out of LAC at the last minute and had to cancel his presentation.

The October meeting is our annual Ryan Taylor Memorial Lecture. This presentation will be back at Library & Archives Canada on Saturday October 15th at 10am. Our speaker will be Leslie Huber, speaking about her latest book `The Journey Takers'.

Tallwood Drive is just south of the Peter D. Clark Long-Term Care Home, just west of Woodroffe Avenue and not far from the Nepean Centrepointe Library. There is free parking to the south of the building, accessed from Tallwood Drive. Transitway routes 94 Woodroffe / Millennium, and 95 Barrhaven / Orleans stop at the building. Local bus routes 156, 172, 174, and 178 are also available. Juice and cookies will be served at 7:00pm with the formal meeting beginning at 7:30pm.
