  • It is not specified that you can not enter the room if you do not have the map to work there.... but we can stay at the entrance! Without exceeding the line, otherwise the staff reminds us of the order without the staff at the reception is unpleasant... No documentation in French for the visit...

  • The first time I crossed the threshold of the Labrouste room (which is part of the INHA-National Institute of art history) to go there to work on the purpose of my research, I was struck by a sensation of wonderful beauty and in my head have moved a thought and a memory. The thought was that libraries as they have always been dreamed of actually exist. The memory was one of the works of J. L. Borges, the famous ' the library of Babel '. At the Labrouste room, it is still the central store that I find fascinating: a room with modern and minimal architecture, wooden and steel structures, reminiscent of a factory, in which the places of the readers are in the center of the room as well as on the different floors, in correspondence of the rays.

  • Fantastic place and space. Lots of lectures and also interesting for architecture travelers or architecture students good to see.
  • This is the 6th largest Library in the World. It contains about 40 million items-- of which 14 million are books! One of the locations has a "newish", modern building whose architecture is astounding!! From a distance the buildings resemble books located along the Seine!! If one has an interest in enhancing their knowledge of France this is an important place to visit! I hope that this Review has been helpful!
