What is my level? How to register


Is there anywhere more magical than a library?

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!

The library is a communal space open to our students and members. Your library’s subscription is included in your registration fees. You are not a student or a member? Don’t wait any longer, become a member: click here

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

The partial renewal of the resources for our library has been possible thanks to the support of Institut français.
