|Tom in the Morrin Center Library|
In fact, it has quite a history and we took a tour through it that included seeing the old prison cells and the current library portion. We'll get to the other parts in the next couple of blogs... and the ghosts we found!
There are tours for a fee and you have to book them in advance.

ABOUT THE LIBRARY - The library was an original part of the prison (which was it's first use) and there are books in there from the 1600s to the 1800s. This is the Oldest English library in Quebec, and just one of 2 English libraries (the rest are in French).

THE KIDNAPPED STATUE - There's a wooden statue of General James Wolfe in the library. You may remember him as the Canadian general in our blog: Quebec Trip #14: Governor's Park and Battle of Quebec.
The kidnap of the statue happened as a result of some sailors. They took it and brought it to England. It was later found after being in storage for over 50 years and brought all the way back to Quebec where it resides in the Morrin Library.
