Effective October 29, Lachine will be offering library services out of the Albert Gariépy Centre (800 Sherbrooke Street) which is on the 90, 110 and 191 bus routes. "The extension and redevelopment of the Saul Bellow Library will improve and diversify the services, activities and programs offered to its users.Accord- ing to plan, the work will spread out over a one year period. I am certain that Lachine residents will truly appreciate the final results," said Lachine Mayor Claude Dauphin.

The library is named after Saul Bellow (1915 -2005), a writer who won the Pulitzer Prize, the Nobel Prize for Literature, and the National Medal of Arts.As a boy, Bellow lived in Lachine.
