Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) the library remains CLOSED until further notice.

IMPORTANT NOTICE – LOAN EXTENSION

The Shannon Municipal Library wishes to inform its subscribers that, due to COVID-19, the Réseau BIBLIO CNCA annouces that all loans are deferred to May 19, 2020, free of charge. If the situation persists, we will make sure to change the return dates again.

This applies even if:
– a document is already booked by another subscriber;
– the maximum number of extensions is reached;
– the book was borrowed through the inter-library lending service;
– the book was late as of March 12.

No late fees have been recorded since March 13.

NO ACTION IS REQUIRED

IMPORTANT NOTICE: DEPOSITS IN THE BOOK FALL

In order to avoid overflowing the book shelf located at the outside entrance of the library, we ask subscribers to avoid going to deposit the borrowed documents there.

The due date for all active loans has been extended to May 19. If the situation persists, we will make sure to change the return dates again.

No late fees have been recorded since March 13. The only late fees for borrowed documents are those that were incurred before closing.

 

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).
