Whether you're a pre-schooler, school pupil, researcher or just a bookworm - in Zwickau you'll find many opportunities to read old and new books, newspapers and magazines. In its main library with children's library, the city library boasts a collection of over 150,000 media for young and old.

The primary task of the university library is to provide students, professors and staff of the university with literature and information for studying, teaching and research. It is also available in the city and region for scientific and professional purposes as well as for general education and training.
