Le Bibliobus

On the road with the Bibliobus

The first of the city’s Bibliobus (Bookmobile) vehicles hit the road on August 16, 1966. The Bibliobus (Bookmobile) serves mainly school districts located far from a public library, as well as those in disadvantaged areas.
Since 2004, the Bibliobus (Bookmobile) has focused on young people living in: 

  • Ahunstic-Cartierville;
  • Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve;
  • Rosemont–La-Petite-Patrie;
  • Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension.

In 2004, with its collection of more than 40,000 books, it attracted 1,000 young people from seven schools and made 25,000 loans.

A portable library set up in a colourful semi-trailer, the city’s Bibliobus (Bookmobile) is inviting to children, rain or shine. It is an original book-lending service in the heart of their neighbourhoods.
