GAI Library


The library on the second floor of the GAI offers a variety of materials in the German language for members to use and check out. Patrons may find books and various other media in subjects that include fiction, children's materials, art, travel, philosophy, language, and more. Most DVDs are compatible with US-standard DVD players and include English subtitles.

Members can check out materials at any time when the GAI is open (usually Monday through Thursday 9am-6pm and on Fridays from 9am-4pm). In addition, the library is staffed during most cultural events.

Books can be checked out for two weeks, movies and other media for one week. To return your items, just drop the materials in the library or in the wooden box outside on the back porch; you can also mail items back to GAI Library using the discounted media mail book rate.

You may browse the library catalog to view our ever-growing collection and to see if an item is checked in or out. Please contact the GAI Office with any questions or if you are interested in volunteering.
