Neubeckum Public Library
Much more than reading!

The Neubeckum public library is a meeting place for young and old. People learn and read here and exchange ideas. Whether you are looking for specific information or want to read for relaxation, there is something here for all reading enthusiasts. But the public library is much more than just a place to borrow books. Whether as a meeting place, for reading or as a workplace - all users are welcome in the public library. Events such as readings and art exhibitions or library tours for children, young people and adults round off the programme.
