As well as housing many works pertaining to the Chamonix Valley, Haute-Savoie, the Alps, skiing and mountaineering, the Médiathèque de Chamonix makes for a great rainy afternoon visit for families. There is a large children’s section (with comfortable chairs), and a fantastic Ludothèque (toy library), with toys that you can play with on-site and also toys to borrow (you need to be registered for this service).
The Médiathèque de Chamonix also hosts children’s workshops, interesting talks and temporary exhibitions / FB page;
