The GGG Basel West Library

The Basel West Library

The American Women’s Club of Basel is proud to work closely with the Basel West public library. We are committed to strengthening our relationship within the Basel community and the library is a perfect platform. In addition to providing weekly volunteering hours to the library’s staff, we collaborate to build more exciting, interactive and engaging English-based programs for adults and children of all ages. The American Women’s Club of Basel donates all of its proceeds from the Annual English Book Sale and additional money each year to support its English collection. The library offers an extensive selection of English books for adults and children.

Whether you are new to Basel or have been here for years, we’d be thrilled to see you at the library! Please keep an eye on the library’s web site for upcoming events and programs.

The Basel West Stadtbibliothek offers smart phone applications in both Google Play and the App Store.

If you have books to donate, Basel West Stadtbibliothek has limited storage space and is only accepting books in good condition with a copyright 2010-2014. If your books meet this criteria bring them to the library during opening hours. The Anglican Church collects books for the Annual Christmas Bazaar and might be able to store larger donations.
