A few libraries in Le Vexin, digital & other, & a Note about modern-reading...


L e Vexin is a beautiful place in France with a remarkable history, political and cinematic: think Vikings -- then Katherine Hepburn as Eleanor of Aquitaine, struck to the floor by her husband Henri II, who has gone off now to raise an army to battle one son and maybe her too, while the other sons are betraying one another and battling them both, and she sighs heavily to the camera, "Ah, but what family doesn't have its ups and downs..."

The Vexin: one Angevin family "prize" and so among many issues between those two, Alienor and her Henri, is located just north, and a little west, of Paris -- also then, here, an idea from researching it, about the future of research, and perhaps of all reading...

There are many libraries in & around le Vexin -- the following is just a representative selection, for more see the entries under city-names at -- then next time you're off on a pilgrimage to Giverny, and if you'll be away from the crowds there and with a little reading-time to spare, consider these, nearby -- or click on them now, to see what they have online in digital-library offerings this very week --
