YOUR OWN FRENCH MEDIATHEQUE

The AFB library, with free WI-FI access, is a resource that all members and students are encouraged to utilise. Our collection of books is nearly exclusively in French and numbers about 2,000 volumes. The majority of our collection consists of a base of classic literature and a variety of recent novels.

Our selection of books in “française facile” has been warmly received by our students.
We also have books on history, literary criticism, art, and biographies.

We also welcome donations; please call us at 510 548 7481 for further information.
