Bibliothèque Nationale de France - Richelieu - main reading room by Beausoleil 1 Star this if you like it!

The Bibliothèque Nationale de France - Richelieu is across the street from Le Grand Colbert Brasserie and we saw an advertisement on their fence for an exhibit. Took a chance and went in to ask about it and it sounded interesting so we entered. There were marvelous 14th and 15th century copies of medieval manuscripts and photos were allowed. The highlight for me was the window into the actual library reading room. It is magnificent, four stories high packed with books and even better, packed with people reading them.
