The Richelieu-Louvois Library

Recommendation by Lemi

Following the sunlight to France, the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) Richelieu-Louvois Library has a beautiful dome that almost renders its reading lamps useless. In the Oval Room, you are surrounded by books in all directions as the shelves gently curve around you. The BnF is one of the largest in the world with over 10 million titles, ranging from topics like aesthetics to zoology. You know the drill: pluck a book from its shelves and settle into the Oval Room. When your eyes get a little weary, all you have to do is look up.
