The City of Ottawa’s Com­mem­o­ra­tive Nam­ing Com­mit­tee is con­duct­ing pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion on a pro­posal to name a room at the Or­léans branch of the Ottawa Pub­lic Li­brary the "Pa­tri­cia Le­duc Room".

This com­mem­o­ra­tive nam­ing pro­posal is made in recog­ni­tion of Le­duc’s com­mu­nity ser­vice and de­vo­tion to pre­serv­ing her com­mu­nity’s his­tory.

Pa­tri­cia Le­duc played an ac­tive part in pre­par­ing the book that com­mem­o­rated the 125th an­niver­sary of the St-Joseph d’Or­léans Par­ish. Over a pe­riod of 20 years, she com­piled five thick, well-in­dexed binders of press clip­pings re­lated to the his­tory of Or­léans and sur­round­ing ar­eas.

A school teacher, a fed­eral pub­lic ser­vant and a mother of three, Le­duc lived most of her life in Or­léans and was in­volved in nu­mer­ous school, par­ish and com­mu­nity causes.

Pa­tri­cia was also co-founder and sec­re­tary of the As­so­ci­a­tion des Séguin d’Amérique, pres­i­dent of the So­ciété franco-on­tari­enne of East­ern On­tario, sec­re­tary and pres­i­dent of the Ré­gionale Ottawa-Car­leton (sub­se­quently Sa­muel-de-Cham­plain), pres­i­dent of the As­so­ci­a­tion du Club d’ar­ti­sanat d’Or­léans and a mem­ber of the Friends of the City of Ottawa Archives.

The pro­posal was sub­mit­ted by Louis V. Pa­try.
