Free Delivery!

Dear Carl-Schurz-Haus Library Cardholder and friends of the Carl-Schurz-Haus,

Are you a member of a high-risk health group, possess a valid library card, and live within Freiburg?

If you answered „yes“ to all of these questions, the Carl-Schurz-Haus Library would like to deliver books and media to you for free!

How will it work?

  • Log in to our online catalog,
  • Reserve the media you'd like to have
  • Send us an email and let us know your reservation is for delivery

You may borrow a total of 5 items:

  • 5 books (including audiobooks)
  • 5 DVDs
  • 5 magazines
  • or any mixture of those items to a total of 5

Deliveries will be made Thursday afternoons (except in the case of holidays—see schedule below). Only reservations made before 23:59 the day before delivery day will be processed! We are not able to deliver to mailboxes. You will need to be present for delivery. Our delivery driver will wear gloves and a mask.

Returning media has always been easy: Simply deposit your loaned materials into our mailbox (just left of our street-level entrance) before they're due.

The renewal process won't change: Just log into the online catalog and renew your loans. If someone else has reserved what you have, you won't be able to renew it.

If you aren't a library cardholder at the Carl-Schurz-Haus and would like to become one, please contact us at, and we'll help you become one!
