Bonjour from Canada

We get some interesting and different requests here at the Library from time to time. Recently we had a request from a university student to provide a debited non-fiction book as their thesis required examples of Library markings on books. The student was from Ottawa in Canada! Postage would have been rather large for something like that so we sent him photographs of our markings for him. We hope this assists with his thesis!

Ottawa of course is the capital city of Canada, in the province of Ontario, which like its neighbouring province Quebec, has a high proportion of French speakers. It also has one of the most beautiful libraries in the world, the Canadian Parliamentary Library as you can see in the photos.
