A note about public health and safety

The American Library is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and following guidelines and recommendations published by public health organizations such as the French Ministry of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

Per the information we currently have available, we remain open, and our programming and services will continue as scheduled. Please check the website regularly for updates.

NOTE: Due to evolving recommendations and travel restrictions, we advise you to regularly check our calendar for program updates and cancellations.

For the sake of the community, we ask that members and program attendees who are ill or who have recently traveled to an area with a known outbreak stay home. Library members who are not able to visit should take advantage of our extensive electronic resources. Visitors are encouraged to follow precautions such as frequent hand washing. For other recommendations about prevention, please see

At the Library, we are increasing our disinfecting procedures and sanitizing surfaces, including door handles, railings, and public kiosks and computers, approximately every two hours. Disinfectant is also available for patrons to use on study surfaces.

If you have books that are due but cannot come into the Library, please give our Member Services team a call +33 (0)1 53 59 12 60. We will happily renew your books until you are able to return.
