Membership to the library is free and gives you access to many great resources:
The library offers members choice from more than 7000 books, half of which are in English. Furthermore, as the library is a member of the Réseau Biblio, you can look at our books, which are all available via your public library wherever you are across the region, and request any that catch your eye: online library catalog. This also means that if you are not in Métis-sur-Mer, you can request English-language books through your local public library.
