Public library

Synopsis

Every day, regulars, students and random visitors seek refuge at the Bibliothèque Publique d’Information (Public Information Library), in the heart of Paris. Among the crowd, between the bookshelves, along the public walkways, we meet inspired students, knowledgeable aficionados, hardened loners, regulars at a loose end, passionate artists... As they take hold of one of the thousands of cultural resources available, each person “inhabits” the library in their own way. And they all share with us how the books, music or videos become a part of them. A public space for private enjoyment, the library is the hub of a discreet, unassuming community.
