Well, it was in the early 2000s that was decided that the building had become unsuitable for these demands. A major overhaul was planned, starting in 2011 by the hands of Bruno Gaudin’s architecture firm. Restoration of the listed ‘salle labrouste’ was attributed to Jean-françois Lagneau. As the intention was to keep the library partially open, the renovation has been divided into two phases, with the second stage set to complete in 2020.
