Espace Jeunes collection

Children rule on Level M of the Grande Bibliothèque. Espace Jeunes is a welcoming, friendly place where children aged 0 to 13 have a choice of more than 70,000 documents to borrow, on a variety of media:

  • from board books to picture books; from first books to novels; and comic books, too―stories for readers of all ages and abilities
  • non-fiction on all subjects
  • books in Arabic, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Spanish and Romanian
  • pleasure for the eyes and ears in collections of DVDs, videocassettes, CDs and audio books
  • CD-ROMs, software and Internet resources to discover in a mouse click
  • a multitude of magazines, for boys and girls alike

In addition, while in the section, children have access to:

  • encyclopedias, atlases, dictionaries, etc., to help them with their school work
  • a collection of games and toys to amuse and entertain them
  • multiple activities all year long

Parents and teachers have at their fingertips a collection of documents on child development and education, covering toddler-age to early adolescence.

The collection of the Centre québécois des ressources en littérature pour la jeunesse (CQRLJ) is also housed on Level M.
