The Art Library (Kunstbibliothek) in the Sitterwerk holds around 25,000 volumes on art, architecture and their history. A substantial portion of this collection was assembled by Daniel Rohner. Material and casting technology as well as materials research forms a further focus of the collection. This inventory is available to the public as a reference library. The Library is housed in one space along with the Material Archive. Exhibitions that revolve thematically around the connections between book, art and material also take place here at loose intervals.
