Besançon Municipal Library

It houses a section of the library of the Granvelles that was saved by Abbot Boisot and made public in 1694. The collections (ancient books, illuminated manuscripts, incunabula, drawings and engravings) are sometimes presented in temporary exhibitions; the oldest manuscript dates from the late 8C.
