Rediscover Saint-Lambert Library during Public Library Week

Published yesterday


Now more than ever, public libraries are the anchors of their communities, offering a wide variety of services that attract both young and old. They are a source of knowledge, a place for getting together, and, for many people, a source of pride.

The City of Saint-Lambert will be taking advantage of the 20th edition of Public Library Week in Québec, which will run from October 20 to 27, to give you the opportunity to discover or rediscover your library through a series of videos. Through pictures and testimonials, you will be able to explore this “third space” (after the home and the workplace) and to pay tribute to its essential role in the community.

To see all our videos, visit our Youtube Channel or follow us on our Facebook Page throughout the week.
