New concept Library Lounge opens at Aquatic and Community Centre

The Côte Saint-Luc Public Library has transformed the library annex at the Aquatic and Community Centre into the new Library Lounge, which includes the popular take-a-book-leave-a-book concept.

“The very popular concept of Little Free Libraries has been gaining momentum in North America over the last few years,” said Councillor Mike Cohen, who is the council member responsible for the library. “People bring books, CDs, or movies they no longer need and take ones already there. There is no need for membership cards and no associated fees. Items are not part of the regular library collection so they don’t need to be returned so there are no due dates to contend with.”

The Aquatic and Community Centre is located at 5794 Parkhaven Ave. The Library Lounge is open from 6 am to 10 pm. The space is loaded with thousands of donated items. People can also use the space to read, relax, play a game, do a puzzle and use the public computer. There is also an outdoor return slot where official library items can be returned 24/7.

Material and monetary donations are welcome and can be made in place.
