Inspired by nature, Indigenous communities, and Canadians from coast to coast, the design philosophy behind the new Ottawa Public Library (OPL) and Library and Archives Canada (LAC) joint facility is about coming together as a community for gathering, learning, and discovery. On behalf of the Anishinābe Algonquin Nation, the facility was named Ādisōke, which refers to storytelling in the Anishinābemowin language.
