Biblio exterieur 2021


The Outaouais BIBLIO Network and its member libraries remain at the service of the community thanks to the free digital resources!

While the citizens of Outaouais are mostly confined to their home and the public libraries have temporarily closed their doors, it is important to remember that the member libraries of the BIBLIO Network of Outaouais always offer several services to the citizens thanks to digital resources.

Indeed, several books and digital services are available free of charge to citizens who are subscribed to one of the member libraries of the BIBLIO Network. These services, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, are available at

  • The PRETNUMERIQUE.CA platform and the OverDrive platform, which offer more than 10,000 books to subscribers (in French and English); 
  • The RBdigital platform and the BibliMags platform giving access to more than 5,000 magazines (in French and in English);
  • The Protéger-vous platform;
  • The new website, which features an inventory of story hours available for delayed listening, a live story schedule, and podcasts and audio books for children;
  • The platform offering more than 800 online and self-study courses.

"Currently, we are actively working to provide our members and the public with a wide variety of books and digital services," said Sylvie Thibault, Executive Director of Réseau BIBLIO de l'Outaouais. "So even if most families have to stay at home, they can continue to learn, cultivate or have fun."

A large self-help network has also been created at the national level to support the population in the coming weeks. In fact, a special team made up of staff from several Quebec libraries has been mobilized to help Quebecers access online resources from their library and answer their questions. To communicate with this team, simply consult the website, a new website created specifically for this occasion or send a request to technical support for the digital resources of the BIBLIO Network at Remember, however, that you must be subscribed to one of the member libraries of the Réseau BIBLIO de l'Outaouais ( to access the various digital services. Citizens of member libraries of the BIBLIO Network are also invited to subscribe online at or request their NIP BIBLIO if necessary at

A new microsite for online storytelling hours!

Public libraries are currently using creativity to provide services to their citizens. Among other things, we can think of the launch of the brand new microsite: Created specifically to respond to the challenges of the current crisis and to entertain families, the site brings together and highlights virtual storytelling hours complying with Copyright Law. It offers an inventory of storytelling hours available for delayed listening, a calendar of storytelling hours live as well as podcasts and audio books for children. In addition, since public libraries are integral to the entire book chain, the distribution of works via these services has received the authorizations from the beneficiaries of the works read.

“The context in which we find ourselves in forces library teams to innovate. Residents are invited to stay on the lookout, as other actions will also be carried out soon throughout the province to give everyone the chance to benefit from a wide range of services, ”adds Sylvie Thibault, Director General from the Outaouais BIBLIO Network.

Mes aïeux maintenant disponible aux abonnés du Réseau Biblio Outaouais

biblio mes aieuxMesAï est un site de généalogie québécois qui permet de faire un arbre généalogique en recherchant ses ancêtres du Québec et d'Amérique du Nord, le tout en quelques clics! Il vise autant les chercheurs expérimentés que les personnes qui débutent, ou qui ont peu de temps à consacrer à leur généalogie.

Le site propose aux utilisateurs une base de données unique, regroupant des données généalogiques sur les paroisses du Québec depuis leur fondation jusqu’à tard au XXe siècle, et couvrant également une partie de l’Ontario, du Manitoba, du Nouveau-Brunswick, de la Nouvelle-Écosse et de l'Alberta. Les données utilisées proviennent de sources fiables. Le processus de contrôle de qualité utilisé permet d’éliminer les doublons et les incohérences, de corriger les erreurs, et de constituer des fiches de familles intégrées. Mes Aïeux permet de construire, de partager, de consulter et d'imprimer un arbre généalogique.
