National Assembly Library

You can also discover the National Assembly Library. Founded in 1802, it provides parliamentarians with the documentary support they require. The Library collections, which are at the public's disposal as well, are made up mainly of books in the fields of political science, history and law, but also comprise periodicals and a large number of old and rare books (15th-19th century). Housed since 1915 in an exceptional heritage building, the Library is open Monday to Friday.
