The Shannon Municipal Library, which offers a modern yet warm environment, is a free service for residents of Shannon and the Valcartier Garrison family housing.

As a member, you will have access to an extensive bilingual collection of books, periodicals, compact discs and DVDs for adults and children. You will also have access to various online services including an extensive collection of bilingual eBooks for adults and children. The library also offers Québec periodicals, free access to RBdigital for downloading periodicals in French and English and access to Genealogy Québec where you can conduct bilingual research on your ancestors.

For those who would only like to use the online services, you can subscribe online on the library’s website.

« MUSÉO des musées à emporter ! » allows subscribers to borrow a MUSÉO card that gives a family of two adults and two children under 12 years of age free access to seven museums in the province including three in Québec City. Certain conditions apply.

Several activities are offered throughout the year, including story time for the youngest children. For children aged 6 to 12, two (2) youth reading clubs are offered, one club during the school year and another during the summer, for the fun of reading.

In addition to our own collection, as a member of the BIBLIO CNCA Network, the Shannon Library has access to the collections of more than 800 libraries affiliated with the BIBLIO Network of Québec and the BAnQ (Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec) via interlibrary loans (PEB).
