Fully volunteer run for over 80 years, the Library at our Clubhouse features an extensive collection of fiction, nonfiction and audio books for all ages, as well as DVDs available for rental.
WEEKDAY OPENING HOURS
Closed Thursdays and all Swiss public holidays.
WHAT'S ON THE SHELVES!
Our dynamic collection includes over 7500 books, DVDs, and other resources for our patrons. For adults: award winning fiction and nonfiction, travel books, biography, classics, reference materials and Swiss history. For children: picture books, easy readers, juvenile and young adult fiction and nonfiction with an extensive US history selection. An expanding selection of audio books on CD for all ages is also available. Our DVD rentals (both code 1 and code 2 formats) include popular titles in action and adventure, drama, comedy, family, documentary and television series. New items are added throughout the collection each month, with special features for holidays. Check out what is new this month!

OUR LIBRARY STAFF

Interested in helping out in the library? Contact Us! We welcome new volunteers (AWCZ members or "Friends" subscribers ONLY) at any time. See Volunteering or call the Library at 044 240 44 59 for more information about becoming a Library volunteer.
A story hour for Moms and Tots is hosted each month, generally the second Wednesday of each month at 10:00 in the Children's Room at the Clubhouse. See Kid's Corner for more information about special events and activities for children.
