The Grande Bibliothèque, a vast public space 33,000 metres square in the heart of Québec's largest city, is an exceptional cultural rendez-vous providing open and free access to more than four million documents, including one million books. Essentially, all collections are part of two major ones: a universal collection and the national collection.

In addition, the Grande Bibliothèque provides specialized services for, among other groups, children aged 0 to 13, teenagers, business people, newcomers to Québec, members of cultural communities and persons with visual or other impairments.
