Description

The outdoor library set up in the courtyard next to the Cathedral (Rue Notre Dame) provided a cozy retreat to all: reading enthusiasts, locals, visitors to the city and passers-by. Who could resist making themselves comfortable under the majestic tree that dominates this peaceful hideaway and enjoy a book, magazine or newspaper? A wide selection of books for all ages was available. A plethora of day-time and evening readings were also held as part of this project.

Theme nights, book readings and a cosy space for reading

Free entry and reservation not required, but capacity is limited.
