Municipal library for Luxembourg City teaching and educational staff
As its name suggests, this library – which was created from the existing teachers' library – is now accessible not only to the teachers of Luxembourg City's municipal primary schools, but also to the City's other educational staff (Service Enseignement, Service Foyers scolaires, Service Crèches). But it is also a place where teachers and educators can meet to exchange ideas and share their experiences.
The library houses over 10,000 specialised books and magazines, which are organised by subject matter: teaching, psychology, philosophy, sociology, civics, literature, sports, languages, mathematics, art and culture, biology, national heritage, history, religion, etc.
Each field is also subdivided into individual topics. The section on teaching, for example, includes books on the neurosciences, emotions, body language, speech therapy, dyslexia and dyscalculia, the learning process and writing processes, failure at school, stress, multilingualism, children's rights and equal opportunity.
Books recommended as part of classes for continuing professional development can also be bought here. Simply fill in the form available below.
