About us

NEW OFFER - Library Subscription

For only 10 CHF/month, you can purchase our 2024 Library subscription which allows you to swap books. Bring books and take a books whenever you want!

Bookclub Mondays

Bookclub Mondays happen every Monday at 7pm at Vastela Books. The concept is simple: bring a book you want to talk about and get the opportunity to share it and discuss it with the group. After the book club, you can swap the book you brought with someone else or with the bookstore.

No registration necessary.

Hope to see you Monday @ Goldbrunnenstrasse 120
