The Bookshelf

The Bookshelf was an English-language lending library that existed for 18 years until they closed in 2011. They were located at Blumenstraße 36, Munich. This is around the back of the Alt Katholische Kirche at Sendlinger Tor.

They had all kinds of English books including bestsellers, classics, travel guides, children's books, history, biographies, and a large collection of mysteries/suspense. The Bookshelf had books in English only!

They were open on Mon, Wed and Fri from 3 pm to 6 pm, and Saturdays from 11 am - 3 pm. Evening hours were Mon 6pm to 8pm.

Membership at the library was €42 per year, which equates to a mere €3.50 per month. Books were lent out for one month and you could borrow up to eight books at a time. A trial four month membership was also available for €25.

Once a month there was a children's story hour.

The library accepted book donations during opening hours and was always looking for volunteers.
