Stadtbibliothek Schaffhausen, Schaffhausen

Library · Traveler Resource
The Stadtbibliothek Schaffhausen (Schaffhausen City Library) maintains a universal scientific stock., but without being associated with a university.

Since the Canton of Schaffhausen does not maintain its own library, the Public Library performs the tasks of a cantonal library. As such, it collects literature on local and regional history.

The library's dual function of being a public library on one hand and a scientific library on the other is fulfilled by two physically separate locations in Schaffhausen:

the Stadtbibliothek am Münsterplatz 47°41′43.4″N 8°38′13.4″E | OSM with the historical holdings, manuscripts, incunabula, special scientific literature, Schaffhausen cultural heritage (Scaphusiana) and the ministerial library. It is still managed as a storage library.

Media stock (2018): 232'300.

the Freihandbibliothek Agnesenschütte 47°41′52.7″N 8°38′12.8″E as a modern, public library with open access to popular scientific and entertaining literature, books for children and young people, audio-visual media.

Media stock (2018): 46'200

  • A super library for young and old to learn knowledge. The staff is always helpful and the rooms very inviting! A super addition for small Schaffhausen. :-)

  • (Star rating, motivated by the amazing me, baseless 2 I would like to write short) Although Schaffhausen is a small town, manages the team to offer a very good blend of sophisticated and modern media and find the compromise between (too) "popular" and (to) "elitist". One feels openness for E-media and assistance plus the experimentation (adaptation of the opening hours). And there is also kindness. Of course, sometimes media ver reiht (probably by visitors) and finding of works may be a tad bit easier; the online catalogue is somewhat restricted in the search, but that is just an old, global system. The journals division covers a lot. Greetings, Wolfgang Friday
