Municipal Library

The public library of the town of Schönebeck (Elbe) is located in a flat-roofed building that was constructed in 1974 as a row of shops and other amenities.
Modernisation and reconstruction work carried out in 1996 and 2008 have considerably increased the attractiveness of the municipal public library.
Since the building complex is on a level with the ground, the library is easily accessible to people with disabilities; disabled-friendly sanitary facilities have also recently been installed.
