Surrey Library Offers German
Surrey’s City Centre Library Can Boast in German!
City Centre library opened in September 2011 and has become a celebrated place within the community and beyond, winning many architectural awards for its soaring, lightinfused space and also winning the hearts of library users. It offers an in-library coffee shop with a good selection of food and drinks for those who like to linger. It is located just steps from the Surrey Central skytrain station.
Surrey’s newest library has the city’s largest multi-lingual collection, including books, DVDs and magazines in German. As well, the library’s Press Display database provides access to 39 German daily newspapers that users can read online within hours of their press time.
Books cover all genres, including general fiction, literary fiction, romance, mystery, historical fiction, fantasy, and science fiction. Non-fiction topics include cooking, health, travel, self-help, and decorating. DVDs are all German-made films (not Englishmade films with German subtitles or voice-overs) and include German award winners from recent years.
Besides the German Language Section, another reason to spend time at the Surrey City Centre is their green initiatives:
