For the 38th edition of European Heritage Days, there is nothing quite like visiting the Mazarine Library in Paris 6th arrondissement. This spot is not very famous – although open to everyone all year around. Meet on Saturday September 18 and Sunday 19, 2021 on Quai de Conti from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. for a free and self-guided tour of the oldest public library in France.
Set by the Latin Quarter, across the Louvre, the Mazarine Library is now part of the Palais de l’Institut, and is one of the biggest in France. It used to be Cardinal Mazarin’s very own library, and has been open to the public since 1643.
Open to all, it is one of the magnificent places in Paris where you can unwind. Need to work and no office? Go to the Mazarine Library as it enjoys a co-working area. Evolving in the exceptional setting of this major library from the 17th century, you can only create wonderful things. Library to study and carry out specialized research on historic matters, the Mazarine Library has kept on evolving since it was created. Over 350 years later, it is a genuine book museum.
