Children and Young Adults

The CSH Library is happy to welcome kids and teens of all ages! Thousands of books - including favorites like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, or classics like The Very Hungry Caterpillar - are just waiting to be checked-out!

All children's books in our library are marked by age group. So if you are not sure whether a book is age appropriate for your child, you can find this information best in our Öffnet externen Link in neuem FensterOnline Catalog or by asking one of our friendly librarians for help. However, these markings are only ever a suggestion and never a rule!

Also when searching for specific titles
, you can look them up in the

Just stop by and discover our collection!

Story Time


Once a month, the Carl-Schurz-Haus Library invites everyone to take part in our Story Time! A chance for kids (and parents!) to just sit back and let new adventures unfold before them.
Each Story Time is centered around a specific topic for which our lovely readers have selected a book (or two) to match. Accompanied by fun activities, children have the opportunity to laugh, learn, and sometimes even sing!

The event is mostly aimed for children between ages 3-6 who wish to improve their English or just spend a fun afternoon at the library. But, of course, everyone is welcome!

The next Story Time will take place on the following dates:

     September 24
: 'Alphabet Fun' with Cheryl Leonhardt

     October 29
: 'Happy Halloween' with Ashley Matthäus

     November 12: 'My Thanksgiving' with Cheryl Leonhardt

     December 10: 'Snowman' with N.N.

The event begins at 11:30 a.m. in the CSH Library and lasts approximately 1,5 hours.

Entrance is free!

However, in order to secure a spot for you and your family, registration is required. Please register Öffnet externen Link in neuem Fensterhere!
