Your American Library

The Library of the Carl-Schurz-Haus is a public library with a full range of circulating media. We offer books, magazines, films and audio books - all you need is a library card.


Our library is the starting point in Freiburg and the surrounding area when it comes to English language content - whether literary classics, modern TV series or Hollywood blockbusters. Our non-fiction department is a good research resource for both college or school students - all in English. We have documentaries and audio books, as well as subscriptions to American magazines. Stop by - it's worth it!

In our library you can find ...

  • over 13,000 books in English
  • more than 5,000 DVDs (movies for young and old, documentaries and series)
  • 50 up-to-date magazine subscriptions
  • three daily newspapers
  • one computer station with Internet access to browse our catalog and the Internet
  • one iPad with Internet access to browse our eBook collection as well as many other media

DVD Player!


We now have a small DVD player for you to borrow if you don't have your own! It can be hooked up to computers or televisions with a USB port.
