    I'm a public librarian in the USA and always try to see the public libraries in the various places in the world that I visit. BanQ now tops my list as the most awe-inspiring I've ever seen. Well worth a visit for anyone.

    A recent addition to the Montreal library scene, Bibliothèque Marc-Favreau is warm and welcoming. Great architecture, lots of light, natural wood and an open plan make for a great space.

    One highlight is the solarium, where you can sit back and read magazines and newspapers. There is even a fireplace warm you can warm up on a chilly Montreal winter's day.

    The staff is most helpful and pleasant.

    There is an exposition on Marc Favreau, the library's namesake.

    This is a good place to enjoy your book. It's not a big one but pretty comfortable! There is a wifi. You can order a city card here. There are different hall for adult and for kids.

    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.
