The community and school library in the Basel area of Aesch is a popular social meeting place. Not only are there books, maps, DVDs and digital media of all kinds to borrow here, but events are also held regularly.
"A cookbook author presents her latest recipes, other times we organize a creative course or an afternoon of games for the little ones. We are a place of exchange and lingering," says staff member Regula Kneubühler. The "Biblio Aesch," as the institution is known in the village, has been around since 1984.
