Our facilities

Sir Patrick Geddes Library

Named after the Scottish biologist who participated in the creation of the Scots College in Montpellier, Sir Philippe Geddes Library is located on the first floor of the Institut français and is fully accessible. It comprises our collections, flexible study area and a children corner. Usually set up with bookshelves throughout the room, we can push these to the sides to offer a great theatre style place. High ceiling and wood panels bring a grand atmosphere to smaller conferences, talks or cinema screening.
