Joseph Roumanille Library
The Joseph-Roumanille Library was officially established in 1885. It was given its own staff and premises a century later, in the late 1980s. The establishment is named after the Provencal writer Joseph Roumanille.
The library has two main functions. Firstly,
it aims to promote public reading in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence,

as well as records.
Secondly, it serves as a cultural center, offering a quiet reading and study space, as well as access to documents about Provence and to municipal archives.
