Eventsundays in the Amerika-Gedenkbibliothek

Each Sunday The American Memorial Library invites visitors to come participate and initiate, to share their ideas, wishes and interests and to help make the library a public and open place.

The concept of these Sundays focuses on interpersonal relationships. Various modules address themes such as participation, independence, responsibility, self-initiative and integration. These topics are the starting point of these Sunday events which are always free to the public.

Alongside regular known and experimental formats, lectures, concerts, workshops and a children's program will take place, as well as a Meeting with the sonntagsbureau during which visitors can give their personal feedback.
