Beach branches for French libraries

For a fifth consecutive summer, the department of Seine-Maritime on the northern coast of France has brought its colourful library cabanas to beach-goers.

The seaside branches have about 1,000 titles each – kids books, graphic novels, classics, thrillers and romances, books in English and books by local writers.

Librarians (“animateurs du livre”) are at your disposal for help and advice.

The way it works is simple. Choose a book, then install yourself on one of the brightly coloured sun lounges. Books must be read ‘in place’.

The Lire à la Plage program runs daily in July and August at twelve popular seaside towns in the Haute-Normandie region.
