About Us

In 1935 we began as the now-oldest retail tenant of Rockefeller Center. In 2009 our world-renowned Librairie de France Bookstore closed its brick and mortar doors due to a rent increase.   However, our mail-order services to schools, bookstores, libraries, institutions and the general public continue.  Founded almost a century ago in 1928, we were an independent, third-generation, family-owned bookstore with neither government nor corporate financial aid, and were a vibrant center of French cultural production. It was the only store of its kind in the country.
