Modern glass building
The National Library of Quebec (Bibliothèque Et Archives Nationales Du Québec) in Montreal has lovely, modern glass architecture so it's clear and bright inside. It's a shame that you can't take pictures inside, because the interior is quite beautiful. There are organized guided visits to explain the work of all the architects who created it. Maybe the collections aren't so interesting for tourists visiting Montreal, but if you're here long-term there's a great collection of books, CDs and DVDs, so it's well worth getting a free membership card. Plus there's free wifi!
