The Bibliothèque Nationale du Royaume du Maroc (Arabic: المكتبة الوطنية للمملكة المغربية; Amazigh: ⵜⴰⵙⴷⵍⵉⵙⵜ ⵜⴰⵏⴰⵎⵓⵔⵜ ⵏ ⵜⴳⵍⴷⵉⵜ ⵜⴰⵎⵔⵔⵓⴽⵉⵜ) (previously Bibliothèque Générale and Bibliothèque Générale et Archives) is located in Rabat, Morocco with a branch in Tetouan.[1][2] The Bibliothèque Générale was created in 1924. In 2003 it was renamed the "Bibliothèque Nationale du Royaume du Maroc."[3]

History[edit]

The library was founded in 1924. After a dahir in 1926, it became a public establishment. Tétouan native Muhammad Abu Khubza authored a library catalog for the branch in that city in 1984.[4]
