Lire vous transporte

Download books by Québec writers at Montréal-Trudeau Airport thanks to BAnQ, ADM and the ALQ 

Québec travellers who are subscribers of BAnQ's remote services are in for a digital takeoff thanks to a partnership between BAnQ, Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) and the Association des libraires du Québec (ALQ, the Québec booksellers' association). Passengers passing through Montréal-Trudeau Airport can choose from a selection of more than thirty e-books in both English and French, all written by Québec authors. 

"Lire vous transporte is a showcase that will help widen the reputation of talented Québec writers as well as developing travellers' taste for e-books. BAnQ is delighted to be a part of this initiative, and I take this opportunity to remind all Québecers that, with a simple online subscription, they can enjoy our collection of e-books, among other offerings," pointed out Christiane Barbe, BAnQ's Chair and Chief Executive Officer.  

Just click on an URL to download on your smartphone, tablet or e-reader the first chapter of a book featured in one of five categories: fiction, children's fiction, thriller, non-fiction/biography and practical guide. Complete instructions for downloading are posted in the airport’s rest areas, located mainly along the international jetty. If you enjoyed the preview chapter, you can read the rest of the story by borrowing the complete e-book from BAnQ's web portal or by purchasing it from the leslibraires.ca website (in print or digital edition). Users are invited to share their best reads on Facebook or Twitter by using the hashtag #lirevt.

A New System to Locate Reserved Library Materials

As of last December, Grande Bibliothèque patrons are able to retrieve their reserved materials more easily thanks to a new coding system. The improved system, which is based on an alphabetical and numerical order (first letter of the last name and last five digits of the number for borrowing materials located on the back of the subscriber's card  – see above), replaces the earlier colour-coded system. It conveniently groups together every subscriber's reservations at the same place. You'll find more information on reserving library materials on BAnQ's Web portal.
