Bibliothèque de Preuilly-sur-Claise

For a small town, Preuilly has a really quite good library. Small but perfectly formed would be a fair description.

Along with the books and magazines (including a selection of English novels) is a media centre with four computers which are connected to the internet, and a printer. For 12€ a year this is really quite good value, and has come in handy more than once. Susan and I joined last February.


The library is open Tuesday afternoon, and all day Wednesday and Saturday. The website is here.

Glad to read your comments on the library. We both joined and think it is a really good facility for such a small town. Somehow joining the library makes you feel more part of the community! We were quite amazed to find a shelf of English books - maybe donating books would be a good idea for some of our surplus!
There is also a very basic library in the Red Cross charity shop in the Rue St Pierre - we found a history of the town to borrow.
