General information

The Council Library of Airolo was opened with the aim of stimulating reading and the interest in books in our municipality.

There are currently about 7000 books for adults, children and teenagers, as well as books by local authors and books containing specific information.

Library users can now access the Internet free of charge on the recently-bought computer.
