Ghosts of the Library (ages 6-12)

10 October 2021 @ 14 h 00 min - 15 h 00 min

Ages 6-12


Join us for games and learn fun and spooky facts about the Library‘s history.


The American Library in Paris has been operating for 101 years! In that time we’ve had three buildings and a lot of interesting things have happened.


Did you know that the Library remained open during most of World War II when Paris was occupied by the Nazi’s and secretly delivered books to its Jewish members?

Did you know that many famous authors (and musicians and actors!) have visited, spoke at or wrote for the Library?

Did you know the Library has a secret passageway?

Do you know any fun facts about people who have worked in the Library in the past and about the people that work here now?

Do you know the Library collection has lots of spooky stories and scary books?


Find out about all of these, and much more, as we explore the Library‘s history (and Paris’s history) with interactive games and help create a timeline of the life of the Library.


This event is for Library members only and registration is required.


Caregivers are expected to familiarize themselves with these guidelines so that we can provide a pleasant library environment for all patrons. If you have questions about events and/or collections for children and teens, please contact Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager Celeste Rhoads: celeste@americanlibraryinparis.org.
