"American Space“ Reading Lounge in the Bibliotheca Albertina


Some of you will certainly have noticed the new large reading lounge in the Bibliotheca Albertina, which has been available to all readers since  summer 2021. It is located on the second floor in the open access areas for American Studies and British Studies.

The armchairs and couches are the result of a successful project that began in 2013 under the title “American Space”. Initiated by Prof. Crister Garrett, it was a cooperation between the Institute for American Studies at the University of Leipzig, the University Library, the US Consulate in Leipzig and the US Embassy in Berlin.
