Labor Union Libraries


Your challenges

In addition to being a cultural and wellness centers like their municipal counterparts, labor union-sponsored libraries are also leisure and wellness zones within the company. Ever since 1945 in France, they have allowed many employees to access reading material and/or upgrade their knowledge.

Following the golden era in the 1970s with more than 3000 listed structures, the transformation of our industrial landscape has taken a heavy toll on these libraries despite the signing of a charter in the early 1990s to promote reading in corporate structures.

Today, in an era where private and professional spheres intersect with greater frequency, and in which corporations are giving more thought to wellness in the workplace, labor union media libraries can take on a key role as they introduce a conducive area for exchange, personal development and satisfaction, which benefit the employee, and therefore the corporation.
