Culturethèque Digital Library

Sortez vos tablettes!

The FIAF Library is thrilled to present Culturethèque, the official digital library of the Institut Français of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

This new digital library gives FIAF Members free access to French culture including e-books, over 250 magazine titles, films, bandes dessinées, podcasts, and more—all online, to download or enjoy via streaming. With a strong focus on everyday life from fashion to travel and cooking, this is the ultimate database for any Francophile. Don’t miss the television programs for children and resources for language learners as well.
