Your English Library in Geneva

Browsing the collection

The Library in English is THE English-language lending library in Geneva. We have a fantastic collection of books for all the family and we are continuously adding to our stock: you will find the latest best-sellers from the US and UK, as well as classics and a wide range of quality fiction and non-fiction. We have a wonderful range of children's books and to help spark the interest of younger children, we hold a weekly Story Hour.

The Library entrance on rue de Monthoux

We are a non-profit subscription library, financed solely by membership fees, donations and book sales. We hold our famous second-hand book sales twice a year, providing a huge choice of English-language books. We are always pleased to receive donations of good quality second-hand English books, CDs and DVDs, to be sold at our book sales.

The Library has been serving the English-speaking community in the Geneva region since 1930 and is managed and maintained by dedicated volunteers: we would be pleased to have your help too.

You can find us in the Emmanuel Church building, just across rue de Monthoux from the Kempinski Hotel. There is public paid parking under the Kempinski (entrance on rue de la Cloche) and the no. 1 and no. 25 buses stop nearby (Monthoux).
