Welcome to the Montréal Botanical Garden Library, the only French-language botanical garden documentation centre in North America.

Visit the Montréal Botanical Garden Library and discover the world of plants, on paper (and other media!), in both French and English.

With collections including more than 25,000 books, 100 multimedia documents, 300 videos, 32,000 brochures, 55,000 volumes of periodicals and 500 current periodical titles, ours is one of the largest horticulture, botany and landscaping documentation centres in Canada.

The library was founded in 1940, primarily to meet the current and future documentation needs of employees of the Botanical Garden, be they botanists, gardeners or teachers. In addition, it is accessible to a wider clientele, including students at all levels, expert and novice home gardeners, professionals and scientists.
