  • If you can't find it here, you won't find it anywhere. Several floors over several buildings, just a few steps away from the Place du Capitole

  • The best generalist library ever in Toulouse. Divided into several parts, it has two different entrances, two different levels but done in small environments, as if passing from one to the other and not as in the floors of a shopping center. Large space for children (but the comics are in a detached section, in the same street) with regular events for the presentation of books. Staff often too reserved to the limit by feeling annoyed, but competent. If you love books you cannot miss this appointment
  • If you just want to browse, or you know what you want, it's likely to work out very well here. But if you're looking for recommendations, or you want to pick up any book and ask the staff what they thought about it, it may not always be the right place. That role is better fulfilled by the smaller bookstores found nearby. In short, some staff are great, some are unhelpful, but the inventory is massive.
