Hello Kinderforscher!

Kinderforscher Selbstverbucher

borrow books by yourself


There they are again: the children’s researchers of the school-accompanying project Kinderforscher at the TUHH. Since 2006, this project has become a permanent fixture at the TUHH.

Within this program, up to 24 pupils from the 3rd and 4th grade from 4 different schools in Hamburg will discover our library under the motto:

“Where is the knowledge of the researchers stored?”.

These dates are planned:

21.11.2017, 05.12.2017, 19.12.2017, 09.01.2018, always Tuesdays from 4.00pm – 5.30pm:

It goes without saying that during the guided tour in reading room 1 (below) it is not always so quiet – therefore thank you for your understanding.
