We are excited to offer our students borrowing access to a wide range of French books, magazines and DVDs. Immersing yourself in French, whether it be through films or literature, is a wonderful (and enjoyable) way to keep French in your life outside of your French classes with us.

The French à la Carte library membership is free for all students currently enrolled in a course at French à la Carte.

Every member can borrow up to 4 items for a period of 4 weeks, renewable once during the borrowing period.

Opening hours

The French à la Carte library is open from Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 4.30pm.

It is a self-serve library based on trust: members pick the items that they would like to borrow, take the library card off the item and put it in the box so that French à la Carte staff know what items have been borrowed. Returned items are to be placed in the return box to be disinfected and quarantined for a period of 2 weeks, before they are returned to the shelves.

Not a French à la Carte student?

Everyone can become a member of the French à la Carte library. If you are not currently enrolled in a French course with us, you can purchase an annual membership for $30, which will give you access to hundreds of French items.

Maximise your French learning experience

French à la Carte is committed to offering Sydneysiders the most complete French experience.

In addition to our regular Term classes, we also organise General French & conversation classes in St Ives and Mona Vale, regular social & cultural workshops, events and immersions in French. These are available throughout the year, not only to French à la Carte students but to all Francophiles looking to add a bit more French in their life.
