“Reading aloud with the family is the best way to introduce children to books at an early age and to teach them the joy of reading.”
Philipp Lahm
Professional soccer player

With 2000 picture books, we make it easier for you to read aloud.
Children love to cuddle up while being read to and have quiet time with their parents, family or friends…
The city library accompanies children through the world of media. We select our media specifically and give age recommendations for films.
You will find a real treasure in the city library, but also in our download portal Onleihe Hegau-Bodensee for the pocket format.

The 9plus department offers exciting, interesting, fantastic books, audio books, films and board games.

Please accompany your child to registration and bring a valid identity card.
Children up to the age of 18 receive a free library card.
