Germans delight in gathering a wide spectrum of general knowledge and a high interest in reading. This is reflected in a strong library (Bibliothek) infrastructure in the state of North Rhine Wetphalia.
The availability of English and other foreign language literature or cds in libraries of the Rhine Ruhr region appears rather sketchy. Many local public libraries do carry some English books though, as do university libraries. Some offer good access to a large number of international press.
One rather unique alternative is the English Library in the state capital of Düsseldorf.
