Lire et faire lire program

The joy of reading shared by children and volunteer seniors.  

Lire et faire lire is a true form of active citizenship! The association offers an intergenerational reading program through local branches across Quebec. The simplicity of the program is what makes it truly appealing. During the academic year, seniors volunteer to read to children in one of their local schools once a week. Each volunteer is assigned its own group of 2 to 5 preschool children, kindergarten children, 1st graders or 2nd graders (4 to 8 years of age).

The program’s mission can be summed up in one key word: ENJOYMENT. The enjoyment of having someone read you a story, of reading yourself, of sharing and creating a bond.

Lire et faire lire has two main objectives:

  • Foster a love of books and reading in children
  • Build intergenerational connections

Interested in being part of this fabulous adventure?  


Becoming a Lire et faire lire volunteer reader is easy!

You must:

  • Love children and reading
  • Be 50 years of age or older
  • Be available during the day, one hour per week for eight consecutive weeks (between September and May)
  • Be able to make your way to the school in your area that is part of the program
  • Be able to read in French

You will then be able to:

  • Take part in an intergenerational activity focused on the joy of books and reading
  • Share your love of books and reading
  • Share and discuss with a small group of 2 to 5 children between the ages of 4 and 8, allowing them to benefit from your life experience
  • Meet other interesting volunteer readers

You must register before Monday, July 31, 2017. The activity takes place between September 2017 and May 2018.  

Selected volunteers will be contacted in August 2017.

Summer Reading Club

The team of the library of Saint-Lazare invites the youth of 13 years old and less to subscribe between June 27 and August 18 to the TD Summer Reading Club direct by Toronto public Library and with Bibliothèque and Archives Canada (BAC).


Imagine a summer filled with books, games and activities that will awaken the imagination.  Then join the TD Summer Reading Club which will run from June 27 to August 18, register in the open business hour of the library.

For youth from 6 to 13 years old and also, 0 to 5 years old if parents engage themselves to read many books to them.

To register, you have to be a member of library and to present your library card.   

The goal of the reading club is to make reading part of the joys of summer. Youngsters who join will be given a log book in which they will write down the title of every book they read. The library’s loan clerks will stamp their logbook after every 5 books read. Information : 450-424-8000 ext. 260

To mark the closing of the TD 2017 Summer Reading Club, a party will take place on August 28, at 7 p.m. at the Saint-Lazare community center. The program includes a show entitled "Les Insectes sur scène" hosted by Bill Bestioles, a large draf which will reward those who have respected their commitment to reading during the summer, as well as a snack and a dance to end the evening. All of our young readers won't want to miss it!
