As you undoubtedly know, the city of Ottawa has closed all the libraries for some time. The message from the city is:

QuoteOPL branches, Bookmobile stops and Homebound delivery services are closed until June 30, 2020. The closure is in response to advice from Ottawa Public Health (OPH) with regards to COVID-19 (coronavirus) for the health and safety of our community. We will continue to monitor the situation and reassess as the situation evolves. 

Since we can't (and shouldn't) have an in-person iMeeting, we plan to have online meetings at the regular times and dates using Zoom. Please join us!

Date: 2020-05-25 (Monday)
Time: 7:30 PM EDT
Venue: A Zoom meeting that you can join on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Although Zoom works in many browsers we STRONGLY recommend using the dedicated app for the best experience. You do NOT need a Zoom account to join a meeting!


  • See the dedicated MUGOO/Zoom page here: https://mugoo.com/index.php/Main/UsingZOOM
  • Download and install the app BEFORE the meeting - update to the latest version!!
  • Use whichever device has the biggest screen so you can see the presentations clearly
  • If you plan to ask questions or have your video (webcam) image appear, be sure to test your sound and video BEFORE the meeting
  • There are tons of videos and help pages on the Zoom site: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us
