Our library focuses on Paris, architecture and urban design. It is open to the public and offers books, trade papers, tabloids, periodicals, thematic dossiers and geographical reports.

Lovers of Paris and scholars alike will find a specialized collection, with librarians to assist and advise them in their searches.

The collection includes books on Paris, its history, current architectural events, the life of arrondissements, and reports that record municipal decisions. There are also reference works on Parisian architecture and urbanism, monographs on architects and buildings, and books on Île-de-France departments and communes and on cities of the world.

The library is free of charge and is open Tuesday to Friday from 1 pm to 6.15 pm.

Readers select books freely; books can not be loaned; photocopies are charged.

The entrance is on the 2nd floor, via the exhibition hall.
