General presentation

Located on the ground floor of the Alliance Française at 352 Maclaren Street, the library is a space in which you can feel comfortable, study and discover our variety of books, movies, CDs as well as additional material for you to learn French! Our mission is to inspire learning, curiosity and connect people… All in French! If you start dreaming in French – BINGO!

The library is a communal space open to our students and members. Your library’s subscription is included in your registration fees.

We will be pleased to help you find what you need or are looking for.
