Mississippi Mills Public Library in Almonte & Pakenham
The Mississippi Mills Public Library has two branches (in Almonte & Pakenham, just outside of Ottawa). The library is situated right on the Ottawa Valley Recreational Trail (OVR) – a heavily biked trail, roughly 300kms in length, running from near Smiths Falls to Mattawa. The library is perfectly suited to support bicycle friendly businesses & tourism in our municipality. The library is already a hub for community information and information about events in the area. Both branches offer nearby, secure bike lock-up areas, local cycling info, a basic bicycle repair tool kit, rest areas & picnic sites alongside the trail and on library grounds/gardens, free WIFI, and washrooms. At the library website are links to Ontario by Bike and other bicycle friendly, exciting, local events and festivals.
