The Mois de la francophonie at the Ottawa Public Library

Feb 28 2018

March is the Mois de la francophonie, and the Ottawa Public Library is celebrating Canada’s French language and culture with a host of activities. Visit the library and join in!


From March 3 to 13, come attend National Film Board public screenings in three of our branches. You will get to enjoy stories about inspiring and inspired women, loving and beloved grandparents, and funny animated shorts.


During the March Break, your kids can discover the djembe with master percussionist Fana Soro or discover the ukulele with Joël Jacques, a multi-instrumentalist Francophone musician from Saskatchewan.


Share your love of the French language with your children by participating in our storytimes


Adults are invited to give free rein to their creativity by taking part in a creative journaling workshop, or to join a conversation, in French, about their love of reading by participating in one of our French book clubs.
