October XVth, MMXIII

The Ottawa Public Library (OPL) system is really quite amazing in terms of its architecture. Take a look at this stunning stained glass window from the original Carnegie Library. This window is now housed in the current OPL Main Library Branch & you get the sense when you look at pictures of the now gone Carnegie that it, along with many other library branches in our nation's capital were just stunning on the drawing board. Truly welcoming, just like old-fashioned Edmonton Public Library (EPL) branches such as Strathcona EPL. People using the library appreciate quality structure, design, as well as an atmosphere. OPL historical branches must have been great places for architectural & design students to learn in & be inspired by.
