Built in 1823 to house the collections of books seized during the Revolution, the Bibliothèque d’Amiens is one of the oldest in France.
The Bibliothèque is a public service responsible for contributing to leisure, providing information, documentary research and continuing education and giving access to cultural activity for everybody.
It is intended to give a taste for reading, to participate in the opening up of the world and to be a place of knowledge. Through its programme of activity around books, the Bibliothèque provides all with enlightenment and knowledge.
The Bibliothèque D’Amiens was a partner in the European-funded Out of the Blue-Woad project.
