Bibliothèque François Mitterrand is a station of the Paris Métro and RER, named after the former French president, François Mitterrand, and serving the area surrounding the new building of the Bibliothèque nationale de France , whose site near the station is also named after Mitterrand, and the Paris Diderot University. It is a transfer point between Line 14 of the Paris Metro and the RER C. It is situated on the Paris–Bordeaux railway.
The station was opened in 1998 when Line 14 was first opened. Its architecture is the work of Antoine Grumbach, a different architect from the one who designed the other stations of Line 14. In the hall where one transfers between the two transit lines, the steps of the stairs are arranged in the arc of a circle and are marked with the letters of different humanistic writings.
