The American Library in Paris was established in 1920 under the auspices of the American Library Association with a core collection of books and periodicals donated by American libraries to United States armed forces personnel serving their allies in World War I. The Library has since grown into the largest English-language lending library on the European continent.

The American Library in Paris has been lending since 1920. Help sustain this vital institution in its 103rd year of service by donating today.
