Bibliothèque de l´Hötel de Ville

Renamed the Bibliothèque de l'Hôtel de Ville (BHdV), the library formerly known as the Bibliothèque administrative de Paris has undergone three years of work and renovation.
On 16 September, Bertrand Delanoë, Mayor of Paris, was present for the library's reopening ceremony, during which a plaque commemorating the philanthropist Alexandre Vattemare (1796-1864) was unveiled. It was he who created the American collection at the BHdV and participated in the construction of the first American library, the Boston Public Library.
