  • The Morrin Centre is a place to visit. I would like to thank Sarah for adding visual details and humor to our tour. She made it a wonderful experience to remember. Thank you Sarah. Also, remember to take the time to visit the library, enjoy the historical books and quiet time.
  • This place is a Hidden Gem I strongly recommend anybody in Quebec to stop by this place well worth the trip
  • Anglophone library with old architecture. Really nice place to read a book or work.
  • It is a wonderful place to study relax or interact with the English Canadian Culture. And I must say, it is a magical place for booklover like me!
  • A must place to visit during a vacation in Quebec city. I don't know why this place isn't better known but i think it's a shame.. Be sure to take a guided tour and stop by the library after your visit, it's just fabulous.
