Past and present…
In a nutshell…
The English-language Library in Angers has been open to the public at 60 rue Boisnet since December 1993. It is a non-profit association funded by the Département de Maine et Loire, the Ville d’Angers, Université d’Angers and the Université Catholique de l’Ouest .
The Association Angevine de la Bibliothèque Anglophone is committed to the management and public usage of the English-Language Library in Angers. The library originated from materials donated by the American Library of Paris, a collection which has steadily expanded with the English-Language Library’s acquisitions. This library actively participates in the dissemination of information relevant to English-speaking countries and seeks to spread awareness and appreciation of these countries’ respective literature and culture, with interest in all English-speaking regions in Europe and abroad. The library offers regular cultural activities that embrace this mission.
