MONTREAL, Nov. 28, 2013 / CNW Telbec / - The Associate Councilor for Culture, Heritage and Design and City Councilor in the Borough of Montreal-Nord, Mme  Chantal Rossi, and the president of the Commission scolaire de Montréal (CSDM), Catherine Harel-Bourdon, announced the establishment of a free and systematic subscription project for first year elementary and secondary students of the CSDM to the network of 45 public libraries in Montreal. This new initiative aims to promote, on the one hand, academic success and perseverance by adequately equipping students, then to increase readership and library visits among young people aged 17 and under.

“Montreal libraries offer citizens a wide variety of quality services and contain a wealth of information useful for student learning. Libraries are friendly and trendy places where young people will have access to the Internet, books, magazines, newspapers from all over the world, but also movies, music, games and activities for the whole family. "Said Mme  Rossi.

In order to carry out this project, the Quebec Access to Information Commission authorized the transfer of students' personal information to the City of Montreal to allow the creation of the subscriber file. Parents or guardians will therefore not have to take any subscription steps other than signing their child's subscription card if they are 13 years of age and under. Newly subscribed youth will receive their library card from their classroom teachers.

"This new initiative by the City and the CSDM testifies to a common desire to support young Montrealers in their academic development and to promote their success," emphasized the mayor of Montreal, Mr. Denis Coderre.

Montreal libraries are teeming with inspiring activities for the whole family. To find out the location, hours and services offered by municipal libraries:
