The French Library


Our French library is very small, but offers more than 400 books and 25 DVD's! Our collection includes literature, novels, theater, history, philosophy, and bande dessinées; we also have a section of youth literature. The library is open exclusively to members, and is a great source for all language learners! Check out what we have with our library catalogue
