Friends of the Anglophone Library Montpellier (FOAL)

Registration #:

We are a small English-language library very near the town centre. At long last we have permanent premises at 23 rue Lakanal, very near the town centre in Montpellier. We are open every Wednesday from 3-5.30 & the first & third Saturday each month from 10-12

The association was set once it became clear that we were not going to be able to save the former American Library in Montpellier. We wanted to provide a library, not to replace the old one, but at least to offer a good selection of books to English speakers in Montpellier and surrounding areas.

We now we have at least a thousand books, thanks to donations and an active purchasing policy. For our new acquisitions we concentrate on recent publications and we are very much up to date with what goes on in the publishing world. We also have some good magazines on loan.

FOAL also organises various cultural events, such as our regular Book Chat sessions, where members meet as a group of readers, with each person talking briefly about a book she or he has read. Eight to ten books will normally "highlighted" at each session. Books are passed round so one can note titles and authors.

Annual Membership Fees:
Benefactor €50

Come along to the library any Wednesday afternoon and the person manning will sign you up.
