Thefts, love at first sight and stereo headphones: the library memories of Train du Livre passengers, from Paris to Brive, 2021.

On the Train du livre, on Friday, November 5, 2021, when it’s time to reach Brive from Paris, we asked people from the world of literature to tell us about their most memorable memories in the library.

“I had to be 11 years old, there were big booklets The whole Universe where we specifically explained how to make his telescope. I tried for a year. It was an impossible stage, I had to polish my glasses, I never got there… But I also went there to read comics. I remember another library, in Toulouse, I must have been 9 or 10 years old, I was going to read Jules Verne. There were also fantastic stereo headphones, I went to listen to Pink Floyd and every week I waited for a new numberSavanna Echo.”

Brive library. If you buy books at the Brive book fair, which starts on Friday, November 4, you can view them for free in the municipal media library throughout the year. Membership is even free for Gaillarde residents. This means that after a simple registration, every Brive member can bring home twelve books at once and keep them for three weeks without spending a penny. in Bulletin of the Library of Francein 2012, Daniel Le Goff has written that “paying is a brake, sometimes considerable, to attending institutions that will always be public institutions that are not financially viable”. It also shows, supported by numerical simulation, that a free user costs less to the community than a paying user.
