  •  Access to reading and working spaces
  •  Access to computer workstations
  •  Fee payments

Among the services that will not yet resume are the issuing of Access Montreal cards and on-site consultation of newspapers and magazines.

While many of Montreal's librairies have reopened, several remain closed. Those include:

  •  Haut-Anjou Library

  •  Parc-Extension Library

The site warned that the number of people allowed into the librairies at any given time will continue to be limited, due to physical distancing guidelines issued by the provincial government.
