The brilliant art-deco style was the brainchild and combined effort of Max Sainsaulieu and local glass maker Jacques Simon. A stained-glass canopy in the main reading room has for decades, captured the imagination of whoever sat beneath it. Maps, manuscripts, posters and iconography collections from centuries ago, are carefully preserved within the confines of Bibliothèque Carnegie.
