“J'aime la petite gem!”
Reviewed 18 March 2010

We stumbled upon this gem of a Library in the centre of Vieux Quebec (Old Quebec). We enjoyed the interesting history of the building, the library and the restored prison cells. As well their collection of old works of literature is impressive. If you are a history buff and will cross many a street in search of ancient bindings, this is a must see.
