Welcome to CEL

Augsut 2021 – Regarding New Coronavirus Regulations
Due to new Coronavirus regulations, we must now require proof of the 3G’s for adults to enter and spend time in the library.
This means proof of one of the following:
– vaccination
– recovery
– a negative test (no older than 24 hours for an Antigen test or 48 hours for a PCR test)
Tests are not required for children.
Please, be prepared to show the volunteer on duty your proof.
The rules for masks, keeping distance, and providing contact data either in writing or with the Luca app still apply.
It is not required to show 3G proof to simply return books.
Thank you for your cooperation!
Stay healthy and safe,

The CEL board


We will still need to follow a hygiene concept.
  • Proof of 3G (see below)
  • Masks are required
  • Try to maintain distance from the volunteer and other members
  • Wash/disinfect your hands
  • Sign in on the contact sheet. OR you can now check in using the Luca App.
  • Disinfect the wash-room before and after use.
We are excited and happy to be able to welcome you all to our lirbary

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.
