Destination Biblio

The Ottawa Public Library (OPL) is very pleased to announce the creation of a kit for public libraries in Ontario that serve Francophone and Francophile communities. Destination Biblio is one of the deliverables of a French-language services improvement project that was subsidized by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport in 2012 and 2013. 

The kit is available in accessible PDF format, in French and in English. In addition to a description of the stages of the project, it provides templates, practical examples, tips and tricks for planning, promoting and introducing the various components of services in French. For example, it includes a chapter dedicated to the development of collections and how to set up French-language sections in the library, advice and tips on networking and publicizing the French-language services offered in the community, and a complete section on programming and promoting activities in French.

The kit is a living document that will be updated periodically. Review it often by clicking on this link:
