Our 95 libraries are public and non-commercial places that offer an inspiring atmosphere for exchange and encounter. Carefully curated collections of around 800,000 analogue and digital media convey an up-to-date image of Germany and promote active engagement with language, culture and society.
In many different projects, we work together with partners from civil society, especially from the library, media and information scene. The topics range from artificial intelligence to reading promotion, from environmental protection to cultural heritage.
The libraries are also open spaces for experimentation and connect Germany and the world through inspiration and innovation.
