What The Library Offers You

Members’ Privileges. Each member of the Library in English may borrow six books at a time for a period of four weeks. All but the newest books can be renewed twice. You can reserve books from our entire collection and we welcome suggestions for new books to add to the Library.

Book Sales. The Library holds book sales twice a year in Spring and Autumn. The immense three-day Autumn Book Sale has become a fixture in the Geneva-area calendar Attractive books for children over more than three decades and is complemented by a three-day sale in the Spring. Thousands of second-hand books, donated by members and others, are sorted by subject for your convenience and reasonably priced. We gratefully accept donations of hardcover and paperback English-language books throughout the year.

Paperbacks and Magazines. Used paperbacks and magazines, donated by our members, are on sale all year long in the Library.
