A note from the LibraryIn 2016, we expanded our collections to include board games, more of your favorite TV series, and hundreds of books on subjects ranging from politics to pirates and dinosaurs to desserts! If you have a favorite book, CD, or movie in French from last year that you would like to see added to our collections, you are welcome to recommend materials via our online catalog.
I hope that this new year will be filled with belles lectures. Wishing you bonne année from all of us at the French Cultural Center!
