Stadtbücherei Kiel, Kiel City Library, is centrally located in the new City Hall with some other cultural activities like KulturForum and Stadtgalerie (City Gallery). The library is situated in the second floor and there are no signs to indicate that fact in the entrance hall. The library is one spacious open room with all activities and resources on the same level. The media collection is good. Like all German libraries there are several user fees. Using wifi with your own computer is free, however. Kiel´s slogan is “Sailing City” and even from the library there is a sea view to the harbor. THREE stars.
