During standard times, the Center’s library serves as a comfortable space of learning and culture with over 30,000 books, DVDs, CDs, magazines, and materials for all ages and levels of French. The library also serves as event space for our conversation groups, author talks, story times, and book clubs. While the building remains closed until May 2022, due to the Center’s exciting renovation project, our library resources and events have taken a new form online!
Online library events
You can find our online events like our Alors… conversation soirees, author talks, and monthly book club under the Events tab. Our weekly l’heure du conte happens live on instagram and Facebook every Wednesday at 3:30PM. Past storytimes can be accessed on instagram here and Facebook here. If you’d like to request themes for future events, you can reach out to the librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org

We have other ways to get books into readers’ hands: we can send you your books via USPS mail. In order to take advantage of this borrowing method, please call our reception at 617.912.0400 to pre-pay a shipping fee of $10, which can likely be used for multiple shipments of checkouts depending on the weight of your order. Items will be shipped using media mail which starts at $2.89 and is the most cost-effective way to get books to you. Returns can either be done by mail or in person.
