General Information 

Our library at our St Kilda premises is closed until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

If you currently have resources from the library, please continue to look after them for us and you can return them when we are able to reopen. No fines will be added to your account.

In the meantime, all AFM members and current students have access to the Culturethèque (the IF/AF digital library) where you will find thousands of French-language resources that you can enjoy from home - books, magazines, videos, comics, audio books and more! You can find further support for our online courses and suggestions for digital resources on our #EnsembleEnLigne page. Follow us on Facebook & Instagram too for regular recommendations on tools, language resources and French language & culture inspiration!
