Centre National du Livre
Centre National du Livre (National Book Centre) is a public agency in France’s Ministry of Culture and Communication, operating within the General Media and Cultural Activities Department. It supports all actors in the book publishing chain including authors, broadcasters, publishers, bookshops, libraries, and literary events organisers. To do so it offers a wide range of aid totalling some €42 million a year in the form of subsidies, credits, grants, and zero-rate loans, which are allocated after consulting specialist committees. CNL operates both in France and abroad.
