The Maison de la littérature is open outside of regular business hours during shows and special events. 

A major component of the Bibliothèque de Québec, the Maison de la littérature houses a public library, writing rooms, a comic book workshop, a creation studio, a writer's residence and a literary stage. It presents a varied program of exhibitions, workshops, conferences and shows throughout the year.  

Dedicated to and open to all, the Maison is a place for writing, creating, sharing and hosting literary events in a lively, friendly and warm atmosphere. It is a place for self-expression, creation and promotion of literary arts. 

Anchored in the historical and architectural heritage of Quebec City, it contributes to the promotion of literature and of Quebec’s authors, locally and abroad. It offers citizens and professionals of the literary world access to a dynamic hotspot and to collections, services, activities and events. 

The Maison de la littérature is the result of a partnership between the City of Québec and the Institut canadien de Québec (ICQ). It is moderated and administered by ICQ.
