About the Ahuntsic library

 

The Bibliothèque d’Ahuntsic occupies the Édifice Albert-Dumouchel which it shares with the maison de la culture (arts centre) and the local employment centre. The library houses a dozen works of art, including two engravings by Albert Dumouchel (1916-1971) who once lived in Ahuntsic-Cartierville. Dumouchel, alongside Pellan and Borduas, is considered one of the major pioneers of contemporary art in Québec.

In addition, thanks to Guy Laliberté’s donation to the Montréal, the work of famous Catalan-born Québec sculptor and artist Jordi Bonet entitled “L’Homme Soleil” has been placed at the entrance of the Albert-Dumouchel building, 10300 Rue Lajeunesse at the corner of Rue Fleury.
