  • This library, which caters mostly to the Montreal Jewish community is a great place to pick up a book, movie, or newspaper related to Judaism and/or Israel, and many other cultural writings.  more »

  • Excellent! Clean wide and large open to the small number OF visitors it receives daily. Plenty of activities on the side line. Check the calendar. Limited computer and printing facilities. An oasis for children books.as for grown ups discounted price bookS always on the racks. Worth a short drop in whenever you are in the proximity of the library! An excellent director currently runs the place!
