The Association of Quebec Public Libraries launched the website, Quoilire.ca, allowing users to obtain a remote reading suggestion service.

As explained by the president of the Quebec Association of Public Libraries, Denis Chouinard, regardless of the location of the readers, they will be able to rent digital books and obtain a service similar to what they would have obtained in their library.

This new platform was implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic, since physical books and access to libraries is usually not allowed.

The full interview with Denis Chouinard is available here.
