Welcome to CEL

Due to the Corona Virus Crisis CEL is closed. Stay safe and keep reading.

The Children’s English Library (CEL) provides a wonderful way for children to immerse themselves in the English language and culture right in the centre of Stuttgart.

CEL is a unique institution, offering an English-language environment where families can meet, join in activities, borrow books, make new friends, and use or practise their English.
CEL is run by volunteers and funded by membership fees and donations.

We request that all those who come through our doors put into practice whatever English they have in order to create an English language space so that the children do not to take the easy option of slipping back into German.

Please note: CEL is run by volunteers for the benefit of our members, groups may only visit CEL by prior appointment.
