Fondation de BAnQ: Warner Bros. Games Montréal Donates $50,000

Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) is pleased to announce that Warner Bros. Games Montréal (WB Games Montréal) has pledged to donate $50,000 to the Fondation de BAnQ in the form of $10,000 per year over 5 years. This donation, a new milestone for the partnership established in 2012 between BAnQ and WB Games Montréal, reminds us that the agreement between the two institutions led to the creation of a circulating video game collection at the Grande Bibliothèque. It supports Warner’s will to promote democratic access to culture, BAnQ’s chief mission.

“Today, video games are recognized as an art form in their own right, the 10th art. They are weaved into the fabric of our society’s cultural production. I am delighted that WB Games Montréal’s donation will allow our patrons to discover new angles to video games,” said Dr. Guy Berthiaume, BAnQ Chair and CEO.
