Bibliothèque numérique de la Colombie-Britannique

Bibliothèque numérique from Cantook Station is a new province-wide French language eBook collection. It includes over 4000 eBooks as well as a limited number of audiobooks. There is something here for fluent speakers and language learners in every age group, with a collection that spans a multitude of popular fiction and non-fiction genres. VIRL cardholders have access with their library barcode and pin.

There are three simple ways to read our Bibliothèque numérique collection:

  1. Read online in web browser at our Bibliothèque numérique site. Materials can also be saved for offline viewing.
  2. Add your checked-out EPUB format eBook to your Kobo or other eReader using Adobe Digital Editions software. As with our OverDrive collection, Bibliothèque numérique books are not compatible with Kindle devices.
  3. Download your book to your mobile device using the Aldiko Next app for Android or iOS for easy reading on the go.

Each user can check out seven books and place 3 holds at a time. This resets as soon as a book is returned, or a hold is canceled or checked out.

For our customers interested in French language materials who would prefer to use the Libby app, we also have a small collection of French materials in our OverDrive/Libby collection.

VIRL recognizes the financial support of the Province of British Columbia and the Government of Canada through the Canada-British Columbia Agreement on French-language Services. We are grateful to VPL for donating their sizable French language collection for use by all provincial libraries.
