Located in the heart of the Aylmer sector, the new Place des Pionniers building will offer a lively, active and diversified facility for the sector's close to 70,000 residents. The three-storey building, which will include a two-storey library and the Aylmer service centre, will feature several benefits. In the new Place des Pionniers, the Lucy-Faris Library will be able to provide a setting that promotes learning, development and cultural immersion. It will also continue to offer municipal services, and will be able to accommodate any future expansion of the library.
Residents are invited to share their views about the new building's design, its integration into its surroundings, and the new library's functions and character. The comments received will inform professionals preparing for the architecture competition.

Gatineau will launch an architecture competition in the fall of 2020. The focus will be on producing a LEED certified building that will be a source of pride. Gatineau residents will be asked to vote for their favourite design. Those votes will be counted in the final score. The winner will be announced in the spring of 2021.
A working group of residents will be set up. Its job will be to make recommendations on the layout of the spaces in the new library, and on the integration of a work of art.
Recognized for its quality of life, Gatineau is a city of 285,000 inhabitants. It is located on the north shore of the Ottawa River, and extends east and west of the Gatineau River.
