In good company

It is not good for man to be alone, and especially to work alone. On the contrary, he needs sympathy and suggestion to do anything well.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

We are looking for partnerships, where children, adolescents and books come together and connect - especially when sharing the one idea, we are passionate about:

Awakening interest in books and literature, to enjoy reading, and having fun.

We love working together with people who share our idea.

Our partners

Nadja Rümelin lives in Erfurt and supports us with beautiful illustrations, and also she’s an author herself! If you look closely, you’ll find some of her work among the treasures of our book store ..

As cooperation partner of the German Bundesliga club SC Freiburg we support the Füchsle Club's project “football and reading”, writing inspiring book reviews and organising events together. Come visit our stall each season start at Freiburg’s football stadium!

At our book store, there are dreams at work: For quite a while now, Monika Schwab’s letterings embellish our window boards. Have a look at her website, or visit our book store and see for yourself!

The ongoing support of our website is in good hands with Martin Folkers - competence with attention to detail, hats off!

Under the leadership of the Kulturamt Freiburg, the Junges Theater Freiburg and the Literaturhaus Freiburg we accompany the preparations and implementation of the great Lirum Larum Lesefest, which takes place annually in October.

In cooperation with the AJuM we monthly publish reviews of outstanding books that received the Leseteter award. We’re grateful for the kind permission of the GEW to publish the winners of the Heinrich-Wolgast-Prize as reading tips.

If you are ever in St. Märgen, take some time and drop by the Café Goldene Krone: An absolutely commendable project and worthy of support - and they got a fine selection of books for the little ones as well!

Actress Petra Gack and musician Mike Schweizer belong to our network, because time and again we are having great events together.

Kathinka Marcks:
Language is not an obstacle, but a opportunity!

The Literaturbüro Freiburg is our partner because of the great projects you can find there, for example “Freileser”.

One of our dearest neighbors is the Museum für Neue Kunst - art and literature being very close (and just across the street).

It’s an oasis of calm where you can just take it easy, sling a hammock and relax - no muss, no fuss! Spend your days dreaming and decelerating at Träumothek.

When the sun is shining, Café Marcel is definitely the place to be. While their parents relish coffee specialties and french croissants, their kids play at the huge playground nearby.

Since the opening of our “French corner”, the Centre Culturel Francais has been one of our most loyal cooperation partners. Together we build bridges between our countries and strive to provide you with a current and original look at French children’s and youth literature.

The association is committed to free software and social networks for Freiburg and its proximity. We support their undertaking and regularly “toot” on their Mastodon server.
