    Libraries are collections of books for reading, study and the preservation of knowledge. From the invention of writing in 2600 BCE, collecting and preserving information has become a function of civilization. The invention of paper, development of the Arabic language and the commercialization of bookmaking led to the earliest libraries for preserving ancient manuscripts. In the 17th and 18th centuries, libraries opened to the public for a fee or by subscription. Public education and libraries were limited until the 19th century, when philanthropists created free libraries open to the public.  Today, we have local public libraries, national libraries, university libraries and private libraries. The rich history of the library has evolved to match the needs of modern society.

    Who was Joan of Arc? Was she a hero, a saint, a witch, a martyr, a patriot, a mentally ill person or a visionary? Artists have depicted her in paintings, films, books, posters, sculptures. She is part of the Western imaginary as a woman who challenged traditions and stereotypes and changed the course of French history during her short life. Contradictory ideas about her illustrate the fact that Joan of Arc is one of the most paradoxical historical figures and a symbol of female heroism.
