Municipal Library

[Translate to English:] Das Schlosserhaus: Selbst Goethe war schon hier.
Schlosser House

The municipal library is located in the historical Schlosser House, which was the former residence of Governor Johann Georg Schlosser and his wife Cornelia, Johann Wolfgang Goethe’s sister, from  1774 to 1787. Cornelia Schlosser died in this house on June 8th, 1777 shortly after the birth of their second daughter.

Governor Schlosser and his wife Cornelia were famous for maintaining relationships with numerous personalities belonging to the intellectual and the literary “Storm and Stress” period in the late 18th century. In 1911 a plaque was put up at the entrance of the residence in memory of these guests often invited by the Schlosser family at the time. Their most famous guest was Johann Wolfgang Goethe who came to Emmendingen twice, in 1775 and in 1779.

Today a wide variety of literature, but also CDs, DVDs and games are available to visitors in the library. A large sitting room in a corner of the library providing a large choice of newspapers and magazines, a coffee maker and a free WiFi zone insures a pleasant stay to all visitors.
