French Language Resources
En français, s'il vous plaît!
French books and French language movies are available at most CKPL branches. If you can't find any on the shelf at your local branch, you can place holds to have French materials delivered to any branch for you. CKPL also has French ebooks for children and adults, French language learning resources and more!
