WHAT TO DO IN STUTTGART
The Stadtbibliothek of Stuttgart
We are starting the summer 2020, these days step by step the city is emerging from the confinement and social distance, we are already beginning to see a more movement in the streets, in the next few days we will finally be able to visit more places, we will be able to show a little more of the different attractions that we will be able to enjoy in the coming months, places very suitable to the situation that we will be living worldwide this year. it was already informed to the public that all public activities such as parties and festivals have been canceled, that´s why we will bring new (or old options) attractions and things to do in the city. We started with a very special place, this is not exactly a tourist destination that visitors with a short time in the city like to visit so much but it is a place for those who live in Stuttgart or plan to live in Stuttgart soon, this is The Stadtbibliothek, the library of the city, the place is great and ceases to be an ordinary library to become an entertainment center and an architectural gem.
The Stuttgart City Library which was previously called the Stuttgart City Library is the administrative center of all public libraries within the city, which is established or located on MailenderPlatz, in the exclusive Europavirtel district next toone of the most popular shopping malls in Stuttgart, Milaneo.
In it, there is a graphic library that is a whole modern art gallery, a music library and a children's library, as well as online animation and an extensive archive of animated films that have been part of the film and animation festival that takes place all the years in the central square of the city.
Additionally, it also includes a network of 17 libraries spread over different districts of Stuttgart, 4 hospital libraries, two driving libraries, and also includes the library of the Stuttgart city hall.
A futuristic vibe is felt in its entry foyers, decorated with lively graphic displays on its screens, secluded comfortable rooms, and computers with free internet access.
Let´s know a little about its background, its history begins with the statute records of what was called Volksbibliotek in 1901, which had its facilities initially in the barracks that is now the Wilhelmsbau building, in the early years they were high development strongly reinforced financially until reaching a difficult moment after the first world war being temporarily closed between the years 1922 to 1927.
In 1965 it was transferred to the Wilhelmspalais building, which was completely renovated in 1960.
In October 2011 the library was moved to the new building at Mailanderplatz designed by Korean architect Eun Young Yi. The construction is located in the so-called Europaviertel, one of the districts with great potential for development in the coming years in what was an old charging station in Stuttgart. Eun Young Yi describes its design as “a monolithic building that marks a new center of modern society but does not consist of a single stone, but only represents a monolithic image, as such consisting of concrete and matte glass brick. And it is covered on the outside with transparent and light glass. The building unfolds inwards like an onion and inside you find a negative monolith, an absolutely geometric white space ordered as a perfect cube illuminated by a central modern lamp.
In 2013 the library won the only award given by the German Library Association and the ZEIT Ebelin Foundation and GERL BUCERIOS as the Library of the year. The jury especially thanked the attention given to people with a migratory background, since it is important to emphasize that it has a large collection of books in different languages, the award was endowed with 30 thousand euros.
The Library offers users a wide variety of books of all kinds of subjects and languages, but it is not only limited to literature, it also has a wide variety of ebooks, movies and even video games, in addition there is a music studio available to its users.
On its top floor there is a cafeteria and on its terrace a quite pleasant view of the city.
The price to join and become a library user is only symbolic. For € 20 a year you can access all the benefits, lend books, download ebooks, in addition to lending your movies and video games. Without a doubt it is very convenient for anyone who studies or lives in the city.
As you can see the images are worth more than a thousand words, the Stadtbibliotek is one of the architectural jewels of the city and we invite you to visit it.
