ABOUT

The Tyndale St-Georges Children's Library has been a cozy and vibrant part of the Tyndale St-Georges Community Centre since 1970. Despite our small size, we see between 9 000 and 10 000 visitors every year!

A space where all children are welcome to gather and improve their literacy skills, learn about and experience the world around them and empower themselves as members of their community.

We're open Monday to Saturday, and each day we offer engaging drop-in activities for elementary-aged children. Children are also free to read at any time, and earn points as part of our popular reading program.

We have a core group of 10 dedicated volunteers that make our library even better.
We accept book donations (if they are gently used, or new).



LIBRARY BOOKS

We have 6 500+ books in the collection (about 70% are in English & 30% in French)
Children and parents can borrow up to 10 books for 3 weeks at a time.

AUDIO LIBRARY

Tyndale St-Georges Children’s Library decided to start a new program creating an online audio library accessible to everyone.

The chosen books are read by our librarians, volunteers and youths. They are mostly adapted for children between 2 and 7 years old.
Audio books have many benefits for children such as :

  • They develop listening skills and encourage quiet concentration.
  • Younger children can understand language above their reading age, learn new words and advanced phraseology
  • They are a great choice for keeping children busy.
  • They are more stimulating and educational than video games or movies.
  • Like paper books, audio books stimulate children’s imagination.
  • It gives the opportunity to introduce the children to another language than their mother tongue.

Audio books are a source of wonder for children of all ages!
*You will need Google Chrome to download the audio books.

Since 1927, Tyndale St-Georges Community Centre has provided empowering educational programming for residents of Little Burgundy from birth through adulthood.
