What is the Espace Biblio @ Square Queen?

The Library is bringing its kids programs and activities outside the library walls!

This summer, children and teens are invited to come down to the ESPACE BIBLIO to participate in a variety of activities led by a dynamic facilitator.

Throughout July and August, there will be a kiosk in Square Queen every Saturday during the Lennoxville Farmer’s Market (9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.) and at other select times.

The Lennoxville Library wants to create a place where youth can express themselves– read, play and learn.

You will find on site:

  • Board games
  •  Books
  •  Toys
  • Science equipment
  • Art activities

We look forward to seeing you there! Stay tuned for more details and weekly program updates!
