OVER - mornings without a library

We missed you in many places, now we are here for you all day!

The group study room in the basement of the Berliner Stadtbibliothek can be used again. The PC workstations there and the group-of-two-workstations can be booked via the reservation system. Max. 2 people work at a table while observing the 1.5 m distance. Tablets and Tolinos can be borrowed again and the piano room in the terms and conditions is open again. This can be booked in advance by phone on 030 / 90226-101.

Furthermore, the Salon der AGB and the Berlin collections in the BStB are open again. The copy service is back on site and the café in the AGB has resumed operation. Equipment workstations can be booked, and seats and workplaces are available in our houses.

You are very welcome, but only with a mouth and nose covering, which is mandatory for the entire visit to us - unless you are currently eating or drinking. We kindly ask you to be happy in the rooms, but only as long as is necessary for you.
