At the Bibliothèque du Plateau-Mont-Royal, you can borrow books and other documents free of charge. See our schedules, activities and services.


The Bibliothèque du Plateau-Mont-Royal is right across the street from the Mont-Royal metro station, in what used to be the Saint-Basile boarding school. The library houses a collection of more than 80,000 items, including many novels, comic books and children’s books. A dozen computer stations are also available to library members.

Some services temporarily unavailable

Due to water damage, part of the library is closed for an undetermined period and certain collections are inaccessible, including adult documentaries, musical scores, reference works, and francization works. However, it is possible to have any title available across the city’s library network brought to the library via the Nelligan catalogue or by contacting us at 514-872-2271. The self-service piano and the study tables are also inaccessible.

The Montréal library network is adding more and more titles to its digital platform. Enjoy free access to books, newspapers, language classes, music, games, etc.  

Once a month, your librarians share their favourite digital picks. 

Kids, adults, themes… there’s something for everyone!
