Public Library Week: Learn more about it at the Saint-Lambert library!

Thursday 10 October 2019

The City of Saint-Lambert is proud to announce the 2019 edition of Public Library Week, which will run from October 19 to 26. 

Now more than ever, public libraries are the heartbeat of their community, bringing citizens together to take advantage of the various services they offer. With 60% of the local population registered as members of the Saint-Lambert library, we can truly say that it fits the tradition of providing a “third space” for local residents. 

It is a place for learning and making new discoveries, thanks to its diverse collection of nearly 100,000 physical documents and 10,500 digital documents. It is also a place humming with activity where both young and old can meet up and share ideas. Last year, for example, the library offered 180 activities that drew more than 4,000 participants. 

Take advantage of this special week to discover, or rediscover, your library! 

An impressive program!

From October 19 to 26, citizens are also invited to participate in various free activities at the library:
