Kids’ Corner – Stewart Hall Cultural Centre
The Kids’ Corner of the Reading and Reference Room is a unique and welcoming area. It lends itself to reading and doing homework, and includes a games section where children and parents can spend quality time together.
Since May 2004, mini exhibitions are held regularly and have been very popular! Along with these exhibitions designed especially for young people and their families, a dynamic program for children is offered regularly in the Kids’ Corner, including pyjama story time, workshops, activities with artists and authors, and much more.
The Kids’ Corner at the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre is welcoming visitors.

IN THE MANNER OF MANON GAUTHIER – Virtual exhibition
In fall 2020, the Pointe-Claire Public Library organized a series of virtual workshops between illustrator and collagist Manon Gauthier and grade 3 and 4 students from École Marguerite-Bourgeoys. Through these workshops, students discover various albums illustrated by the artist and are initiated in the artist’s technique so that they can create their own collage, accompanied by a short story.
ARTISTS: École Marguerite-Bourgeoys, grades 3 and 4
We would like to thank the teachers, the school École Marguerite-Bourgeoys, the Centre de services scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys, and the artist Manon Gauthier.
