EB has a wonderful bilingual library with a collection of over 21,000 items (books, magazines, DVDs…). The collection is designed to help students discover the world of literature and make it easier to support French acquisition at home—whether your household speaks French, English, or another language.

We have a well-rounded collection of children’s books and periodicals in both French and English. All classes go to the library for story hour or activities around books. From Preschool on, children can check out books and videos for home use.

Parents also have full access to our collections, and can bring home materials to support their children’s learning or the family’s tastes. Our library catalogue is accessible online, so you can browse it from home. Our librarians can assist you in choosing books, magazines, audiobooks in French and English, and DVDs that correspond to your child’s interest and reading level.
