As part of Festival Quartier du Livre

Old Library Visit

Old Library Visit

The CCI is delighted to be taking part in the fourth edition of the Quartier du Livre festival, organised by the Mairie du 5e, with this visit of our beautiful 18th century Old Library. The bookshelves are laden with 8000 volumes, half of which date from before 1812, but the real treasures are its three illuminated manuscripts. Each summer, the collection benefits from research by a new fellow who studies works in the Old Library or documents in the archives.
