As part of festival Quartier du Livre

Old Library visit

Old Library visit

The CCI is delighted to be taking part in the third Quartier du Livre festival, organised by the Mairie du 5e, with this visit of our Old Library

The Old Library is one of the last of its kind – a small collegiate library of which there were many in the area before the Revolution. The bookshelves are laden with 8000 volumes, half of which date from before 1812, but the real treasures are its three illuminated manuscripts.
Full details of the literary festival all over the 5th arrondissement (17-24 May): www.quartierdulivre.fr
