Biographical history

Françoise Maurice was born in Coaticook on 17 December 1916. Her love for books and music developed during her childhood through access to many books in the family home and the pursuit of music lessons at the convent in Coaticook. Following the opening of a public library in Coaticook in 1959, Maurice began as a volunteer and eventually acquired a permanent position. Her passion for arts, culture and heritage showed through her organization of exhibitions of art, photographs, and antiques. The eventual outcome of an antique exhibition was the establishment of the Beaulne Museum. Maurice held a position at the library for 32 years but was also involved with setting up some of the first dance classes, volunteered for the Beaulne Museum and the Coaticook Historical Society, and taught piano, among other things. In 2003, the City of Coaticook honoured her years of service to the library and the community by renaming the library in her honour. Maurice passed away the 11 September 2009, at the age of 93.
