F is for France’s Richelieu Library

No! The weekend has… ended. But we’re back to the challenge on this happy Monday with a new feature in our journey through the most beautiful libraries of the world.

Today it’s the Richelieu Library that’s a part of the National Library of France in Paris. It’s called the Bibliothèque nationale de France in its proper tongue, or the BnF for short.

Over the years, the library has moved to various buildings. The Richelieu Reading Room houses the BnF’s special collections of art, manuscripts, photographs, and other antiquities.
