Bibliomedia Switzerland

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bibliomedia Switzerland is a public Swiss foundation based in Bern . Its main goals are the development of public libraries and the promotion of reading in all language regions of Switzerland. To this end, it runs three “library centers” in Solothurn , Lausanne and Biasca with a comprehensive inventory of books and other media on all topics and areas of interest. This does not apply to actual teaching aids or scientific literature.

The “Lexicon of Swiss Authors” published by the foundation offers an initial access to the lives and works of numerous writers.

Dominique de Buman has been President of the Board of Trustees since 2008 , and Franziska Baetcke has been the Director since 2016.
