After two years of renovations, we are back at 53 Marlborough Street! We would love to have you come and visit us! The catalog can be accessed here.
The library also serves once more as event space for our conversation groups, author talks and story times.
Online library events
Many of our events are still online, like some of our Alors… conversation soirees, author talks, and monthly book clubs. You can find more information about those on the Events tab. Our story time “Heure du conte” is back in person but past storytimes can be accessed on instagram here and Facebook here.
Borrow by mail
If you can’t make it to Back Bay, we have other ways to get books into your hands: we can send you your items 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.
Culturethèque is an online library that offers French Library members free and unlimited access to over 350,000+ digital materials, including magazines, e-books, songs, concerts, videos, and language learning exercises.
