BAnQ's Chair and CEO Elected Vice-Chair of the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership's Board of Directors

Christiane Barbe, Chair and Chief Executive Officer of Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ), has been re-elected as member and elected for a two-year term as Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership. As Vice-Chair of the Board, she will sit on the Partnership's Executive Committee.

Ms. Barbe is among a group of directors appointed during the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership's Annual General Meeting held on April 20.

As a member of the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership, BAnQ is involved, on an occasional basis, in coordinated promotional efforts and in collective large-scale projects such as night video projections on building façades, including the Grande Bibliothèque's.

The Grande Bibliothèque is one of the liveliest public venues in the city and the Quartier des spectacles. Its contribution to literary culture is unique in the neighbourhood's landscape and adds directly to its vitality.

The statistics are drawn from information collected through the legal deposit of print publications with BAnQ. Illustrated with numerous charts, this digital document is an invaluable tool for anyone searching for precise data on print publishing.
