Cancellation of a library subscription for a non-resident of Montréal

Last updated March 16, 2022

Do you live outside of Montréal and want to cancel your library subscription? If you paid for your subscription, a reimbursement is possible under certain conditions.

You can cancel your subscription at any time by going to the service counter at one of the libraries in Montréal’s 19 boroughs.

If your subscription was free of charge

Simply advise your library that you wish to cancel your subscription.

You could have subscribed free of charge in the following cases:

  • You own property in Montréal.
  • You study at an educational institution in Montréal.
  • You are an employee of the city.

If your subscription was paid

Two cases are possible:

  • If you are still living outside of Montréal at the time of cancellation: no reimbursement.
