Médiathèque du Grand Troyes

FR : Médiathèque du Grand Troyes
10 000 m2, 500 000 ouvrages anciens et contemporains, 575 places de lecture, 60 postes multimédias, la médiathèque de l’agglomération troyenne a été entièrement déplacée pour être réinstallée dans un grand vaisseau architectural de verre et de métal en 2002. Ouverte à l’origine dans l’ancien couvent des Cordeliers en 1651, c'est l'une des plus anciennes de France, enrichie à la Révolution par le fonds très important de l’abbaye de Clairvaux. La Grande Salle a été entièrement recréée dans sa forme originelle: sur les 18 rayonnages d’une longueur de 50 m, larges de 10m et hauts de 7m, reposent 45 000 livres anciens (Le livre le plus ancien : «liber pastoralis» du pape Grégoire 1er (VIIe siècle), ; Exceptionnels : la Grande Bible de Clairvaux en 5 volumes, la Bible en 2 volumes de Montiéramey (XIIe siècle) et les 1700 manuscrits des VII et XIVe siècle). C’est aussi l’une des plus grandes collections d'incunables (700 livres imprimés avant 1500), et une très riche collection de reliures médiévales dont de très rares reliures romanes. Original : un parcours scénographique retrace l’histoire des collections de nos jours jusqu’au XIIe siècle et se déploie autour de la Grande Salle reconstituée.

10,000 sq m, 500,000 ancient and contemporary works, 575 reading places, 60 multimedia posts, the new library was entirely removed and reinstalled in a great architectural vessel of glass and metal in 2002. Originally it was opened to the public in the old Cordeliers Convent in 1651 and is one of the oldest in France, enriched at the time of the Revolution by the very large collection of the Abbey of Clairvaux. The Grande Salle or Great Hall was entirely recreated in its original form: there are 18 shelving units 50 m long, 10 m wide and 7m high, housing 45,000 ancient books (the oldest book is “liber pastoralis” by Pope Gregory 1st (VII c.) ; Exceptional: Grand Bible of Clairvaix in 5 volumes, Bible in 2 volumes by Montieramey (XII c.) 1700 manuscripts of the VII and XIV c…). One of the largest collections of incunabula (700 books printed before 1500) and very rich collection of mediaeval bindings including very rare Roman bindings. Original: a scenic meander lasting one hour, retracing the history of modern collections back to XII c., spread around the reconstructed Grande Salle.
