The recent Leisure propensity for mystery novels may have something to do with a new library card for Bibliothèque Georges-Vanier. Situated in a restored firehall across from a park and wading pool, Georges-Vanier library is a perfect leisure reading haunt. The library is meticuolously shelved and and visually annotated by theme (see photo above for the visual key for mystery).

Of special note, The George-Vanier book collection includes over 300 hundred books on cooking, food and gastronomie, recently donated by La Presse food critic, Françoise Kayler, Fonds Françoise Kayler.
