The area
Neighborhood: Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.

A recent addition to the Montreal library scene, Bibliothèque Marc-Favreau is warm and welcoming. Great architecture, lots of light, natural wood and an open plan make for a great space.

One highlight is the solarium, where you can sit back and read magazines and newspapers. There is even a fireplace warm you can warm up on a chilly Montreal winter's day.

The staff is most helpful and pleasant.

There is an exposition on Marc Favreau, the library's namesake.
