This is the reading room at the Richelieu Library in Paris, a part of BnF (Bibliothèque Nationale de France). The Richelieu site is dedicated to coins, stamps, maps, manuscripts, music, objects and prints, holding the rarest objects including first examples of human writing.
This oval reading room is quiet as it should be for reading.
