Bibliothèque nationale de France

The "Bibliothèque nationale de France" or "Bibliothèque François Mitterrand" (after the name of a previous French President) is the largest of the 7 sites that compose the French National Library. It's made of 4 main towers in which no less than 10 million books and publications of all sorts are kept (more here). Yesterday, with the sun it was absolutely gorgeous.

  1. It's an impressive building(s) and an impressive library. John and I went there because the gift shop was the only place we could find a certain Atget CD-ROM. If I could have read more French I'd have stayed there all day.
