After the town library Blumenthal closed its gates in 1996, in 1997 the “Förderverein Bibliothek Blumenthal e.V.”(library association) was founded with the aim of continuing the former library based on voluntary work.

In April 1998 the Blumenthal library had its festive opening in the school complex Eggestedter Straße, in 2002 the library obtained new, bright shelves and a department for audiobooks.

After two removals, the Blumenthal library is situated today in Mühlenstr. 70 and caters to all age groups.

New users are always welcome and become after paying the annual fee (11-€ for single members or 18-€ for families) automatically members of the library association.

If interested, a guided tour of the library for children’s groups and school classes can take place after the registration.

The library’s holdings are about 10,000 media:
Novels, crime stories, nonfiction for children and adults.

Books for children and young people, audiobooks as well as books in English.
There are also intercultural media and the magazine of the Stiftung Warentest.

The holdings are constantly supplemented with current titles and managed by dedicated staff.

Apart from the regular lending. the library organises book flea markets on the last Saturday before the summer holidays and on the Saturday before First Advent.
