The American Library in Paris offers a wide range of English-language materials and academic digital databases that will suit the needs of students and faculty from universities, study abroad programs, bilingual and international schools, French lycées with Anglophone sections with competitive IB programs, English language schools, and homeschool programs.

An orientation session is the best way to introduce students to the many resources and services at the Library. Here are some requirements for signing up for a Library orientation:

  • Must request for an orientation at least 2 weeks in advance.
  • If you are signing up for Library memberships, each institution is offered one free orientation per grade level or discipline
  • If not signing up for Library memberships, each orientation is a flat rate of 35€ and 5€ per student.
  • For research orientations, it’s preferable if students can bring a laptop.
