The Hilden City Library is spread over a total of three floors, all of which are barrier-free.

There is a magazine area on the first floor with magazines on a wide range of topics. Daily newspapers can be read comfortably anywhere in the house. Family, children's and strategy games are available in the board games area. Books on gaming and video games for the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 5 and other consoles round off the range of games.

There is also a separate section with Blu-rays and DVDs for young people and adults as well as the lending bar. The LeihBar is a library of things, so items such as a mini projector, action cam, sewing machine and much more can be borrowed.

The 1st floor houses the novel section, the children's department, the "Generation Plus" location, audio books and the parents' library. The youth section and our study room are located on the 2nd floor, as are the internet café and the non-fiction books for adults. In addition, the city library offers numerous seating options that invite you to linger.

Online media management

Via the union catalog "Bibnet" you can perform searches at any time, view your current account overview, renew borrowed media and use the digital media offers.

Our event tips:

Numerous individual and series events are held throughout the year for a wide range of target groups. The offer includes, among other things, reading sessions, author readings, comic and manga drawing courses, gaming events, repair meetings as well as technology and sewing workshops.

Lohmi's colorful discovery tour

Günther Lohmer, author from Leverkusen, is coming to the library with his book "Technology simply explained" for an experimental author reading. The main focus is on interaction and dialog with the children. With the help of small experiments, everyone "dives" into the world of technology together.

In addition, there are many interesting insights into the structure and functioning of everyday objects brought along.

For children in grades 3 to 4, participation is free of charge. Registration via our participation portal is required.

Constituent meeting of the Friends of the City Library

Libraries need friends - true to this motto, a support association for the Hilden City Library is to be set up to support its work.

The aim of the association is to support the Hilden City Library in its function as a place for education, leisure and participation. Possibilities for such support include, for example, the acquisition of donations and funding for the library's equipment or the planning and organization of events.
In this way, the association members can support the Hilden City Library in the ongoing development of its services and participate in the design of new services. At the founding meeting, the statutes will be adopted and the association's board elected.

If you would like to get involved in our support association and attend the founding meeting on Tuesday, July 23 at 6:00 pm, please register by sending an email to
