Elgin Street is starting to take shape

Updates on Elgin Street Renewal

The past few months have been somewhat of a challenge but Elgin Street, in its new incarnation, is beginning to take shape. Some paving has been done at the south end. We can see a few sections of real sidewalks emerging. Curbs are beginning to appear. In front of our shop, the new roadbed is being prepared this week. We hear that the street might re-open to traffic sometime in December and the finishing touches will be applied in the Spring. We’ll kind of miss the Porta-Potty that stood outside the shop for a time.:)

Ottawa Writers Festival

There is an unusually large number of September events this year (the Festival proper is in late October). So far we will be hosting John Ivison and Andrew Wherry on September 9th, Margaret Atwood on the 17th, Jody Wilson-Raybould on the 20th, Charlotte Gray on the 24th, Emma Donoghue on the 26th and Pico Iyer on October 1st.. And there are more surprises coming!

Keep up to date and purchase tickets on line at the Festival Web Site or purchase tickets at Perfect Books.

Fall and Winter Hours

We will close at 6 p.m on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday starting September 16th. All other hours remain unchanged.

Free parking is available in the City Hall lot every evening and weekend. There’s a pay lot on Somerset at Metcalfe and on MacLeod just west of Metcalfe.

Thanks for your continued support. We need it and we thank you for it.
