The Central Library is closed on Sundays in August and September.

We rebuild for you ... and make room for something new!

As part of the construction measures of the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, the reconstruction of the Central Library continues. After the completion of the 3rd segment, the reconstruction of the 2nd segment on the first floor has begun.

In parallel, renovation work is also taking place on the roof of the Central Library.

We ask for your understanding that there may be noise and dust during the reconstruction phase. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
