How to get a Library Card

In order to check out media in the American Library, you need a library card from the Stadtbibliothek Karlsruhe.

There are two ways to obtain this library card.

  • You apply for a Stadtbibliothek card at the American Library unless you already have one
  • You become a member of the Friends of the American Library Karlsruhe e.V., and are automatically entitled to membership in the Stadtbibliothek Karlsruhe.
The library card is also valid for the Karlsruhe Public Library as well as all the other branches.

To obtain a Stadtbibliothek card (which of course can also be issued at the American Library) you need an ID (passport, etc.).

The annual fee is:
  • EUR 19.- for adults
  • EUR 12,50 for students
  • Kids under 18 free for books/ 5.- EUR for DVDs
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Friends of the American Library Karlsruhe e.V. and actively supporting the American Library either financially or through voluntary work, you will find further information on the "Friends" page.
