Librairies - City of Sherbrooke
Sherbrooke’s libraries offer more than 220,000 items on a wide variety of topics for both youths and adults. In addition to numerous literature and nonfiction books, their offerings include audiobooks, large-print books, periodicals, games, compact discs, DVDs, language methods, digital books and online databases.
Free-loan access regulations
All members of Sherbrooke’s libraries can benefit from a free six-month membership to one of the other member libraries of the BiblioPôle. To do so, you must first obtain a duly signed BiblioPôle user card, available from the Éva-Senécal municipal library only. You may then present this card at the lending library to enjoy free access to loans from this institution.
BiblioPôle user cards are valid for six months, and can be renewed. Simply request a new card from your home library.
This agreement covers loans only. It does not cover other services, such as reservations or the use of computer workstations.
