The Bibliothèque du Mile End occupies the former Church of the Ascension, which was built in 1910. In 2015, it was renamed Mordecai Richler after the internationally renowned Montréal author who won two Governor General’s Awards (1968 and 1971).
It has a large collection of documents including major collections of novels, comic books and children’s books as well as an art hive, an activity room and computer stations.
The Montréal public libraries network has more and more to offer through its digital loan platform, which includes books, newspapers, language classes, music and games. Once a month, your librarians share their favourite digital picks. Kids, adults, themes… there’s something for everyone, seven days a week, 24 hours a day! Learn more
