Library of Parliament

library-canadian-parliament-ottawa-44928.jpg

The Library of Parliament in Ottawa sits at the rear (north) of the Centre Block building on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The Library of Parliament is the only original part of the original Centre Block after it burned down in 1916. The library clerk at the time had the presense of mind to close the large iron doors before the fire reached the library.
