French Media Library


Browse through the largest collection of French language books and media in Vancouver and B.C.

Created in February 1998, the media library at Alliance Française Vancouver offers a space to gather, socialize, and access leisure activities. The library houses the largest collection of French language items in British Columbia, with over 11,000 items covering multiple disciplines of literature, appropriate for all levels and ages. It also serves as an important resource centre for students.
