Public Libraries

In the center of Lugano in Parco Ciani (the large park along the lake), there is a branch of the Ticino Cantonal Library system. Although most books are in Italian, there is a selection of foreign literature, including books in English. With your public library card, you also have access to the library at USI Università della Svizzera Italiana and the public university in Lugano.
