Many times summer language immersion administrators and instructors overlook the rich collections housed in various town libraries. Students of French immersion programs have an opportunity to utilize local libraries. This essay describes the facilities and services of five libraries in La Pocatiere, Quebec. A series of interviews of librarians and students provided evidence of a failure to connect and utilize rich local resources for projects and activities. French literacy and oracy are important components for which libraries can supplement with books, databases, videos/DVDs, audio books and so forth. More importantly, libraries provide a venue for meeting citizens, learning about the culture, and practicing French. (Contains 1 table.)
