Share your good books!
Inspired by similar projects in major cities around the world, the borough of CDN—NDG is launching Livre-service, a free resident-to-resident book exchange available at twelve locations.
The idea is simple: people leave a book they liked in a “book box” and take one out. They are free to decide whether to return the book taken. There is no charge, no registration and no obligation. There are currently twelve book boxes.
The success of Livre-service will be determined by citizen participation. Take part in this exchange!
**Warning: The book boxes have been removed for maintenance. They will be implemented at the following locations during the month of May. **
Livre-service book boxes are available at the following locations:
- Accès Montréal office: 5160, boulevard Décarie
- Parc Macdonald
- Parc de Kent
- Near coop La Maison Verte (at the intersection of rue Sherbrooke O. and avenue Melrose)
- In front of Centre sportif CDN
- In front of Centre sportif NDG
- In front of l'Éco-Quartier NDG
- Saint-Raymond Community Center
- Near CHU Sainte-Justine
Please note : Livre-service is not a book drop for your neighbourhood library. Library materials must be returned to the public libraries.
Livre-service is a partner of Libérez les livres!
If you like, you can put a sticker in any books you leave in a Livre-service box, to indicate that you've "freed" them.
