Help support CBC's 2019 charity of the year
The Montreal Children's Library is CBC Montreal's 2019 charity of the year.
The library opened its first branch in 1929 and brings learning and literacy opportunities to children and their families in areas of the city not served by municipal libraries. Though their bricks and mortar library is located in the St. Michel neighbourhood, they also have weekly outreach programs at six sites across Montreal.
The MCL is one of the oldest privately funded libraries in the city. Over the years, its purpose has evolved from simply providing books, to offering innovative programs and services to children and families. It runs after school programs such as science programming, offers peer mentoring and organizes clubs on environmental awareness and journalism.
