Library Tours

Library tours can be taken on most days, but they must be reserved in advance. We strongly recommend Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday morning, as the library is closed to the public at this time. Participants will be introduced to the library and its collections and will be able to learn via hands-on practice how to research a subject or a title in the catalog, how to find a book on the shelves, etc. The visit takes about an hour—a half hour for the tour itself and a half hour for the participants to explore and browse on their own.

To make an appointment for a library tour, contact one of the two librarians, Julia Arnold and Jutta Kleiber. Please tell us the number of participants (and in the case of school classes, their age level) and whether the tour should be given in German or English.

In the case of school classes with pupils under 18 years of age, we recommend giving the pupils library registration cards in advance so that they may be signed by their parents or guardians (we can send these to you per post). Then the pupils will be able to borrow books at the end of the tour. At the end of school class tours the short film “Mr. Bean in the Library” may be shown on request.
