Built nearly 150 years ago, this is where Canadian politicians go to research key legislative issues

Inside Centre Block is a five-part series that gives an exclusive tour behind the iconic building, now closed for repair, restoration and modernization.  The doors will not open again for over a decade.

Part Three takes you inside the Library of Parliament, with its countless unique carvings, arched dome, and vast collection of books.  Dr. Heather Lank, the ninth Parliamentary Librarian of Canada, provides an overview of why the Library was first built and how it continues to serve its purpose today.
