I would very much like to make this happen.

Do you have space for about 1200 books in your shop, public building, annex to your home?

Would you find this facility useful?

If you can answer either or both of these questions, please go to the contact page

and send an email outlining your interest. Thank you.


In the meantime I will be setting up a virtual library with access online to the library catalogue.

You browse, you click, I deliver (within Tourrettes-sur-Loup)

Plans are afoot for this to be incorporated into a local association.

Check back here for updates and DON’T throw away any English books.

There will be room for more in the future.

Good company. Susan Lewis used to live in this village.
