Second hand Books in French

We have news!
After 29 October, la librairie will become online only.
Our stock will be available to order through a brand new website (currently under construction).

Running a high street shop for nearly five years has been amazing yet it’s now time for the next chapter.
Thank you for your loyalty!


Welcome to la librairie

La librairie (Librairie française) is located in Hammersmith, London W6 (see map).
The whole idea started with the realisation that it wasn’t easy to find many books in French in London, in spite of the large Francophone community. After a lot of thinking and many discussions with French speakers/learners, we decided to set up a shop to exclusively offer second hand books in French, for anyone who needs or wants to read in French.


We have a wide selection, in all kind of sectors: children’s, comics, graphic novels and manga for all ages, crime/thrillers, classic and contemporary fiction, non-fiction, cookery, collectibles and so on.

We believe all books deserve a second life.


In la librairie you will also find sweets and biscuits from France which you might miss over here. These can either be taken away or eaten onsite with a hot drink.

Home design pieces

We also are a London point of sale for Bleu Carmin Design® and are pleased to offer their Animo Collection of home objects such as lamps, shelves and pegs, as well as their jigsaw puzzles for children.
