The Bibliothek Andreas Züst [Library of Andreas Züst] encompasses approximately 10,400 books on topics ranging from, e.g., the weather, geology, astronomy, physics, literature, photography, art, kitsch, and popular culture. Since 2010, the Bibliothek has been housed within the Alpenhof. The former hotel located at a majestic site on the Appenzellian St. Anton (1,110 m a.s.l.) not only offers facilities for overnight stays, but also spaces for working. For CHF 100 per year, it’s possible to become a sponsor of the Bibliothek. In return, sponsors receive the option to borrow books for up to one month.
For further information about the Bibliothek Andreas Züst, its history, and its outreach/educational program—as well as its studio residency stipends, which are open to applications twice a year—, see www.bibliothekandreaszuest.net.
