OUR LIBRARIES 

Our Métis-sur-Mer resource centre includes a bilingual public library which now has a branch offering English books in Rimouski. Both of our libraries are part of Réseau BIBLIO-BSL and home a wide variety of books for adults, teens and young ones. Our collection can be consulted online at ibistro-bsl.reseaubiblio.ca (Métis library is 109 and Rimouski is 110) and borrowed via any Réseau BIBLIO-BSL public library for free. Plus we partner with the Mont-Joli, Matane and Rivière-du-Loup libraries where you can find a great selection of English books that are replaced every six months.

We have also carefully put together a English Health & Well-Being Collection with recent titles on different health subjects for the whole family. These are available at either of our libraries, just look for our yellow labels.

All Réseau BIBLIO-BSL public library members also get access to free regional French eBook loans through pretnumerique.ca. Tutorials are available on the prêt numérique website and don’t hesitate to ask us for help, we will show you how.
