Saint-Germain-en-Laye Library

Reopening of the BU on September, 6th, 2021

Due to works for the construction of a Learning Center, the Saint-Germain-en-Laye Library has moved to D building,

on the ground floor, entrance through D-05.

Partial access to the collections, spaces and services of the library is provided on the premises.
Part of our collections is relocated to the Cerclades Library in Cergy.
It remains accessible via the PES service (loan between sites).

Exceptional closures

Your BU will be closed punctually in September because, as at each start of the school year, Raymonde, one of our former students, will take us on board with our newcomer students for an escape game.
