Libraries network

Located in every corner of the city, Montréal’s 45 libraries are open doors to knowledge, information and the joy of reading and learning. These accessible, democratic and shared institutions play an active role in the social, economic, cultural and civil development of individuals and communities.

Thanks to neighbourhood libraries and their more than 1,000 employees, over 4 million physical and digital documents – books, music, movies, magazines, video games and board games – are made available every day of the week to librarygoers.
