The French Library was established in 1963. Within the framework of a cultural agreement between Bulgaria and France of 1966, it unites the holdings of Alliance Francaise and the French Institute. In 1990 the French Library becomes part of the Faculty of Classical and Modern Philology at Sofia University. Since 2011 it is a branch library within the University Library network.

The library holdings are acquired primarily through donations and book exchange. Now they comrised 36,900 volumes of books, periodicals and reference editions. Prevailing genre is fiction, distributed by periods (Middle Ages, XV-XIX century, contemporary writers). The collection of literary criticism of French writers from the Middle Ages till present is unique in Bulgaria, as well as the collection of Francophone literature (Belgian, Canadian, Swiss).
