Who are we?

Die Bücherpiraten (book pirates) captivate children and get them interested in books. 
We are a charitable organization and have set ourselves the goal of enabling children and young people to experience literature creatively and independently. Our projects are aimed at children and young people between the ages of 3 and 19. Literature festivals, reading, writing and acting groups: our children’s literature center in the old town of Lübeck, Germany, is home to all. Our Story-Seeker project has spread to hundreds of different preschool nurseries.
The association is solely financed through private donations. If you would like to donate, you can do so here.
If you would like to find out more, simply visit our website at www.buecherpiraten.de or pay us a visit in the children’s literature center.
