Please join ASIS&T and SCIRRT this Friday (Nov 6th) as they tour the private collection of The French Cultural Center.


The group will first meet up at 1:15pm at the Arlington T Station.  From there the group will continue on and meet at the French Cultural Center 2pm. Please plan to arrive promptly at 2:00pm.  The Library is closed to the public on Fridays, but will be open for this special Simmons tour.

The tour of the library will be led by head librarian, Marie Lalevée. The French Cultural Center and Library was founded in Boston in 1945. It began as a one-room collection of 500 books. Today, the library holds 28,000 French language materials for all ages. It is the second largest private collection of French books, periodicals, DVDs, and CDs available in the United States.
