Booking the library
After several months of refurbishment Goethe-Institut’s library is open again. Thanks to the architects from Cachè Atelier it now has a brand new interior and functions: it has more space to host events, visitors and lovers of literature and a design that is mobile, simple and modern at the same time.
Diversity and social sustainability
The idea behind the refurbishment was to make our library a library for everyone and as barrier-free as possible. Encounter and exchange are central to the concept of the new library. This applies also to events in cooperation with our partners.
An inclusive guidance system with contrasting colors and pictograms for dyslexics was developed. Guide dogs are welcome. We are a place of values, and inclusion and diversity are an expression of Germany’s cosmopolitan and enlightened image. Inclusion means for us to think for the others and is an attitude towards people with cognitive and/or physical disabilities.
Send us a booking request through our online form. We will get back to you with a response within the next five working days. A single applicant can book the library for up to five events a year. In view of planning, we ask that you apply at least 20 days prior to the event.
Goethe-Institut reserves the right to turn down applications, if the activities do not correspond to our values, the application is incomplete, or the library is already booked on the requested date.
The total area of the library is 160 sq. m.
