Gatineau, April 27, 2020. – Given that going to the library is no longer an option under the measures imposed by public health authorities, the library is going to you! Gatineau residents who do not have an Accès Gatineau card can now sign up for a library membership card online.

The library card provides free access to online services such as borrowing digital books and periodicals, and watching movies.
The library card will be valid for as long as the libraries are closed.
Once they reopen, simply go to the library with proper ID and proof of current address to extend your free membership.


there has been a significant increase in demand for the library's digital works in March 2020 compared to March 2019:
