Developed jointly by the Palais de Compiègne and the libraries of the City of Compiègne, the exhibition addresses the theme of the library given that its two libraries, those of the Emperor and his guests will be restored in the spirit of restitutions, which will allow a more in-depth visit of the site in the future. The opportunity is thus given for the presentation of some of their rich collections of works and manuscripts which were scattered in the late nineteenth century but also to trace the sometimes turbulent history of the libraries at Compiègne from the time of Louis XV via Napoleon I to Napoleon III.

Various events are organised around this theme: see full programme and press release (in French).
