Recommended times

During the week : 

Access flows smoothly every day except Saturdays and Sundays: in this case we recommend that you arrive after 5pm to avoid queuing for too long.
At weekends, visitor entry is often suspended for what can be quite a long time, when all places are occupied. 

During the year : 

Access flows smoothly all year except in May and June (during the French exam revision time) and during the Christmas holidays

Use the Affluences app to find out how busy the library is in real time and see our webcam for a glimpse of the queue.
