Children will find a dedicated space which gathers about 3 000 documents (novels, albums, magazines, comics, and non-fiction books). A great selection of French and Francophone novels and bandes dessinées are available for adults, as well as numerous non-fiction books (History, Art, Middle East…). The library also offers a large selection of documents for learners of French from all levels (exercise books, Easy French novels, books to prepare the DELF, TEF and TCF exams…), and, since 2020, it also provides textbooks and exercise books for the learners of Arabic (MSA and Ammiyeh).
Monthly activities for children (Storytelling, creative workshops) and for learners of French (conversation and writing workshops) are also organized in the library.
