The Royal Saltworks opened a shop/library back in may of 1984, it was done under Richard Edwars’s supervision, with specialties such as architecture, urbanism, and foresight.
Immediately, the library became renowned, she was viewed as the best provincial library, (that is specialised in achitecture), and viewed as the second best in the country.
The shop/library was born straight out ouf the scientific and cultural project of the Saltworks, wich allowed the Saltworks to prioritise the appearance of a need of purchase, linked to the visiting experience, as well as the imagery that is portrayed by the monument.

Designed with a rather contemporary style by the old Guard’s court, by two architects, J. Aubert and F. Montès, the Saltworks’s Library offers pieces of work  linked to the thematics of the old Manufacture of the Royal Saltworks :

> The Saltworks’s history, her architect Claude-Nicolas Ledoux, the history of architecture and architects from antiquity until present days, the heritage, interior’s architecture.
> Salt, his history through ages and continents.
> the pure utopia, the social one, foresight.
> The Garden Festival
> The Franche-Comté, the Saltworks fits into a landscape, into a region, The Franche-Comté, with her eventful historical past, and her seductive geography.
To better learn about them, the Saltworks’s Library offers guides, books on it’s history, it’s illustrious characters, it’s traditions, it’s gastronomy, it’s writers.
> Children’s books, over the same thematics.
