Each member of the family has the right to borrow resources under their family account.  The annual fee gives access to books, DVD, CD, games, toys and costumes.  Each family can borrow the maximum number of resources for the maximum loan period.  The items can be renewed as long as the item has not been reserved by another member of the library.

B – Special needs

This membership allows the borrowing of resources labelled ‘special needs’.  These resources support children with difficulties in the following areas; cognitive, sensorial, fine motor, global motor, language and communication.  It is important to note that these resources have their specific use and that specialists such as occupational therapists are best informed to ensure the proper use of the material.

 For members that are not members of the library CDAF, there is a membership for health professions, schools and institutions, etc for an annual fee (see membership table).

 For families who are already members of the library CDAF, additional annual fee applies.
