Richelieu Library in Paris

Hi guys,

I have seen some pictures of the great reading room at the Richelieu Library in Paris, and I was wondering if anybody can provide me with the address of this place?

Is this part of the modern Francois Mitterrand Library, or is there a separate building in Central Paris??

I appreciate the help very much!

Do you mean this room : …wikipedia.org/wiki/Biblioth%C3%A8que_nation… ?

It is the main room of the former Bibliothèque Nationale. With the construction of the François Miterrand Library, the Bibliothèque Nationale became Bibliothèque nationale de France (BNF), of which the buildings at 58 rue de Richelieu (métro stop Palais Royal or Bourse) are now a part. They house the special collections.

There are visits possible, on reservation : bnf.fr/fr/…a.visite_richelieu.html

Thank you very much!

So 58 rue de Richelieu.

And I need to make a reservation in order to visit the main reading room?
