The Lower Canada College Libraries develop lifelong learners and proficient users of media and technology through programming, instruction and activities.

Services for Students and Parents

LCC’s two libraries offer a refuge where students can engage in independent study, collaborative learning or leisure reading. Our head librarian and library technicians are happy to help students locate books, articles or reference materials for their school projects and personal interests.

We love challenges! We’ll recommend an app to an iPad enthusiast. We’ll suggest a great book to a student who doesn’t like reading. We’ll help you learn how to track down reliable sources when Google doesn’t take you far enough.

LCC parents may also borrow library books from both the Junior and Senior Libraries, and we are happy to advise you if you have concerns about your child’s reading skills. Books and magazines can be borrowed for two weeks.

A Collection We’re Proud of

We offer a collection that supports the curriculum and encourages students to read for pleasure. We have 25,000 volumes in English and French, and we are continuously adding new titles. As an IB school, we aim to include materials that cover a range of international perspectives.

In addition to our print collection, we have a growing collection of e-books for leisure reading, as well as twelve online databases where students can search for reliable, in-depth information. Pre-U students have access to Concordia University Libraries.
