Rebuilt following the fire, The Reading Room at Centre Block held a large collection of foreign and Canadian newspapers, periodicals and weekly newspapers.

Like every space in Centre Block, The Reading room has plenty of symbolism. You can read about it here: https://www.ourcommons.ca/…/collectio…/CP_Reading_Room-e.htm
