In collaboration with the Bibliotheque Alma Bourget Costisella and Douglastown Community Centre, an English book club is now being offered in Douglastown. Meetings will take place every six week, rotating between the Gaspé Library and the Douglatown Community Centre.
The next meeting will take place: September 23rd, 2021, 7:00 p.m. at the Douglastown Community Centre.
During the last meeting, participants discussed sources of English books in Gaspé:
-Book Exchange Boxes at the Book Club and at Chez Ron’s Restaurant
-Borrowing books from the Gaspé library, Bibliotheque Alma Bourget Costisella.
To search online for local books in the Gaspé Library, one way is to go to Click – Catalogue – Catalogue en ligne – EN (at the top) – Advanced Search. Then in Library, select Gaspé and in Language, select English, and enter an author or title. Press enter. Your Gaspé Library account number number, it is your full library card number, and the password is the last four digits. If the book you want is not in the local library, you can order it for $2 via Interlibrary Loans (PEB).
-For a wider choice of free, ebooks go to the OPEN LIBRARY
