The Mini Book Sales outside the Library will continue through August on Thursdays and Saturdays from 12:30 to 16:00 (weather permitting).
The Library in English is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays only from 12:30 until 16:00 for the time being. Books and magazines are for sale in the Library again.
To ensure the safety of volunteers and members we request that you follow the social distancing guidelines. Please note the additional changes below:
- Library access will be limited to 6 members at a time, we therefore request that the time spent in the Library be kept to a minimum.
- Building access will be from the side door of the Library facing the rue Docteur-Alfred-Vincent, please come in that way or follow the signs from the rue de Monthoux side around the church.
- Everyone entering the building is to use hand-sanitizer, which the Library will provide. Face masks are required for all over 12s (please bring your own).
- There are no fines on overdue books at the moment, however books should be returned by the due date.
We are not currently accepting donations of books for the Book Sale.
The Library in English is an English-language library a short walk from the station, close by the lake. Every week, we add to our collection of more than 10'000 books. We welcome all who want to read in English and offer a wide range of fiction and non-fiction for adults and children. The Library is wheelchair accessible.

The Library also hosts twice-yearly second-hand book sales.
