The Alliance Française de Washington offers collections in French and in English for Francophones,
students of French, and English readers interested in books about Francophone subjects.
The library collections are open to the public for on-site enjoyment. A membership with the Alliance is required to borrow books, movies, music, magazines, and language learning materials.
