I read about this place online, and convinced my siblings to go and do the tour and we all ended up enjoying it.

For only $12 it was well worth it. Our guide was hilarious and kept it interesting and fun. The jail part of the tour was by far the best, but the whole place is quite interesting and has a lot of history.

An excellent and engaging hour with a feisty, knowledgeable tour guide who helped us to understand elements of Old Quebec which we would never have come across on our own. I finally sense what it must have felt like to be in prison, how precious English written books must have been to the minority English population in Quebec and how lovely it is that people care enough to take care of this center.

We really enjoyed our tour. It’s a beautiful building with lots of historical significance. We came because we’re Louise Penny fans and much of the action in her novel Bury Your Dead happens here. But there is much here to appreciate regardless.

This place is rich in history. It is the only English library in Quebec City. It is rustic and classic. We could've stayed in there for hours.
