Library on Wheels Program
LIBRARY ON WHEELS
HLSL offers a library-on-wheels service in partnering with community organizations (daycares and schools) to facilitate access to books and supporting literacy activities for an early childhood clientèle to youth up to 17 years of age. Books are selected and provided to partners on a rotating basis.
Our libraries partner with four municipal libraries located in the lower Saint-Lawrence area: Bibliothèque Jean-Louis Desrosiers of Mont-Joli (click on Collection Santé-Anglais), Bibliothèque municipale Fonds de solidarité FTQ of Matane, Bibliothèque Madeleine-Gagnon of Amqui and Bibliothèque Françoise-Bédard* of Rivière-du-Loup municipal libraries in facilitating access to English books on a rotation basis every six months.
Some one hundred titles from our local collection, ranging from novels, young adult fiction, audiobooks, biographies, health resources and other non-fiction, are accessible for loan at these libraries.
*Note that the Françoise-Bédard Rivière du Loup municipal library is currently closed due to renovations. Rotation service should resume in the fall of 2022.
