A cultural institution of the French town of Marseilles, the Regional
Archives and Library are dedicated to the former mayor and renowned politician Gaston
Defferre. Built in 2006 to replace the old regional library centre of the
Bouches-du-Rhône department dating back to 1945, the new multifunctional
building was meant to offer larger and better organized spaces to Marseilles
Allowing easy access to culture to a wider audience, nowadays the
library organizes a wide range of events, workshops, seminars, and shows, besides
the regular promotion of exhibitions of every kind. Also become a place for
exchanges and meetings owing to its modern facilities, the library’s main
mission is to encourage local players in the book chain, such as writers,
illustrators, and editors, to give loud voice to their creativity.
