Sylvia Beach opened Shakespeare & Company in 1919 at 8, rue Dupuytren as both a lending library and a bookstore. The bookstore closed in 1940 and never re-opened. Beach gives 5,000 books by English and American authors to the Library in 1951.
Starting on Saturday 16 January, the Library will close each night at 18h in accordance with the new national curfew.
On Saturday and Sunday, the Library will open early to compensate for the reduced evening hours.
