The International Municipal Library in Grenoble

The collections at the International Municipal Library in Grenoble are made up of 90% of documents in six foreign languages (German, English, Arabic, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, a choice linked to the partnership with the city international school), and in French as a foreign language. After three years in operation, it is possible to make a first assessment (notably in terms of collections and publics) and to feed into the reflection on the presence of foreign language texts in libraries, a professional sector which has not yet been fully formalized.
