The different zones

With more than 31,000 books and printed material (23,000 in the adult section and 8,000 in the youth section), 3,500 CDs and 500 DVDs, the Multimedia Library, Prosper Mérimée is a place of culture, and enrichment of knowledge using books, images and sounds.  For ease of use, several zones have been created.


Ground floor

  • Reading material for young children to teenagers
  • Newspapers and magazines
  • Fiction and non-fiction
  • A meeting room (lectures and book signings)


First floor

  • Comic books and Mangas (Japanese comics)
  • CD library
     
  • Multimedia zone (9 computers), spread over the two floors of the library
     
  • An attractive space especially for "Reading to young children" is also provided: rugs and blankets offer families a comfortable welcome. Adults can accompany their toddlers in reading stories and nursery rhymes. On the first Friday of each month the library hosts storytelling and nursery rhymes for toddlers (up to 3 years old), accompanied by an adult: parent, grandparent or childminder. Expectant mothers are welcome. Held in a quiet corner, pleasantly decorated with cushions and small chairs, children can listen to stories, surrounded by reading and picture books, that they can look at and browse freely. This event is open to all who wish to spend time playing and reading with their children, to meet other adults and their children. No prior registration is required. In addition, every Wednesday at 10.00, a tales, stories and nursery rhymes event is held for children.
