1964 – The American Library in Paris relocates near the Eiffel Tower on 10 rue du Général Camou, 75007 Paris. As the Library owns the building, is it intented to be its definitive location.

1992Marlene Dietrich‘s personal library is donated to the American Library. As Dietrich was an avid reader prone to annotate her book collection, it’s not rare when browsing a few books of the Library to stumble upon some interesting or casual marginalia.

1998 – Two public access terminals with internet access are set up in the library, near the entrance. Their nicknames? Gertrude and Ernest, obviously!

2003 – Thanks to the support of the Anneberg Foundation, several programs are launched or revived, including the “Evenings with an Author” program.

The Anneberg Foundation‘s support helps the Youth Librarian position to be developed, helmed by Helen Stathopulos until 2010 and by Celeste Rhoads since then.

2007Charles Trueheart, former correspondent at the Washington Post, becomes Director of the American Library.

2008 – The library’s print newletter Ex Libris is rejuvenated after 85 years in the form of E-Libris, a digital newsletter.
