Boston's French Cultural Center Launches First Francophone e-Library in U.S.

From The Boston Globe:

Boston’s French Cultural Center has expanded access to its electronic library to Francophiles nationwide making it the first French language e-Library in the country.

The Marlborough Street center had previously allowed only New England residents to access their e-Library of 550 eBooks and eAudiobooks, but the center has removed the geographic restriction to registering for a library subscription [fee-based].


The electronic library consists of contemporary and classic literature, biographies, travel guides, and other genres, as well as titles for all levels of French readers, according to the center.

From the E-Library Home Page:

Our initial, hand-picked collection of 500 e-Books and e-Audiobooks has something for everyone:

  • Classical to contemporary literature
  • Non-fiction (history, biographies, travel guides, etc.)
  • Titles for readers at all levels, from beginner to native speakers
  • Titles for young adult and early readers
