Salvation Army Museum

The library for all

The Kornhaus Library is both a place of discovery and a place in which to meet others, a place in which to read, discuss, listen, participate and relax. Our range is diverse and we offer a wide selection of media. We offer you captivating novels and audiobooks, informative non-fiction books, exciting films, electronic media (eBooks & eAudios) for people of all ages and backgrounds, as well as internet terminals, free Wi-Fi and charging stations for your electronic devices. A selection of current daily and weekly newspapers and magazines is also provided. The Kornhaus Library can be explored in an unusual and exciting way through author readings, previews, children’s events and a makers’ space. The network of Kornhaus Libraries unites ten neighbourhood libraries in the city of Bern, some with an integrated toy and games library, plus two reading and play pavilions, park libraries as well as new additional libraries around Bern.
