The AFB Media library was renovated and given a new look in May 2012. It offers a warm welcome and a good ambience to its users. It has books (both in English and French), dictionaries and encyclopedias, DELF and DALF reference books and grammar books, albums and comics, magazines, journals, DVDs, documentaries, and music CDs and pre-recorded audio exercises in grammar and phonetics. The Learners’ Library and Kids’ Corner were specially created for the benefit of children and other language learners. The students of each level can choose their reading material without much difficulty because of these graded book shelves. Internet and audio visual facilities are also available for the library users and access is free to students and cultural members of AFB.
A new digital library was launched in November 2013. Members can access online, documents of their choice. To use this facility, it is necessary to have an active membership at the Media Library (to join the library, please refer to the page “How to register”).
There is also a new francophone zone created for documents on Quebec. This includes a collection of movies made in Quebec. Any person who is interested in settling in Quebec will find valuable information on this topic in these documents.
