Stadtbibliothek Offenburg

A room filled with books is enchanting and like magic lifts my spirits up instantly. I love books and I have always loved libraries so much, bookstores as well –  From the little school libraries to the huge national libraries or a bookstore on the corner of the street.

My friends, both the lads and the ladies, love to read. We may be into completely different genres but we all fancy a good read and I’ve been very fortunate to have had that hobby since childhood.

Imagine my thrill when I first stepped into the Stadtbibliothek Offenburg (The Offenburg Library). The floors and floors, rows and rows, shelves and shelves of books it held! Wandering betwixt all those books, I instantly found my new little haven in Offenburg. I could easily spend all day in the cozy corner of the beautiful library turning pages.

The library itself was a beautiful structure with three floors. It had tables and chairs at the coziest corners where you could read and study. The top floor held the English novels and is naturally my favourite section – browsing from bestsellers to bestsellers to pick out my next read.  🖤

To borrow books, you need to apply for a membership card – either a monthly card or an annual card. If you just want to read inside the library, you do not need to get a membership card. The library is opened from Tuesday through to Saturday, and is closed on Mondays.

 🌿🍀🌈 I was drawn to the location the library was located on the very first few days of my arrival and it still is the most charming place in town for me. Something about the brown buildings mixed with glass, and the way the trees and benches are arranged is very pleasing and pleasant.🐾🌈🌷
