The Library in English is closed until further notice due to the Covid-19 measures taken by the Canton. We are not currently accepting donations of Books for the Book Sale.
The Spring Book Sale is postponed until the Summer, we will announce the new date in due course.
The Library in English is an English-language library a short walk from the station, close by the lake. Every week, we add to our collection of more than 10'000 books. We welcome all who want to read in English and offer a wide range of fiction and non-fiction for adults and children. The Library is wheelchair accessible.
