Cancellation of library activities

Due to COVID-19, the library must unfortunately cancelled its activities. 


The Chelsea Library also offers a multitude of activities, events and exhibitions as a cultural venue for everybody.

Thanks to the employees and its many volunteers, your library offers a wide range of programs all year round! 

Thank you to the Leacross Foundation!


The Chelsea Library would like to thank the Leacross Foundation for enabling the library to acquire several new books including those by authors and illustrators Kevin Sylvester and Amélie Montplaisir.
Last March, during the 12th edition of Authors' Week, these artists were invited to come and meet the youth of the municipality at the library. Unfortunately, the activity was cancelled due to the exceptional situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

We still invite you to discover these artists by borrowing their books through the contactless loan service.
