The American Hungarian Library has a 6,000 volume book collection that is overseen by a professional librarian and is available for reading and lending for members. You can enjoy free Wi-Fi as well.
In addition to our books on history and reference materials, our collection is continually expanding with current bestsellers from Hungary, Hungarian subject matter books in English, and also fiction and non-fiction from Hungarian-American authors in English.
The Library places special emphasis on offering a meeting place and programming to English speakers interested in all things Hungarian, such as Film Clubs and meet-the-author events. Twice annually we also offer an 8 and 10-week Hungarian language course taught by a native speaker.
• The Short Story Circle (Kosztolányi Kör) is for individual, non-voting members, students and seniors. It offers complimentary book loans, e-mails, newsletters, and invitations to events held in the Library where you can enjoy free wi-fi as well ($20 per year).
• The Novel Circle (Márai Sándor Kör) provides full voting membership and free loans for the entire family. You also receive e-mails, newsletters, and invitations to the events held at the Library, free wi-fi in the Library, as well as a $5 coupon for use during our book fairs ($40 per year).
• The Best-Seller Circle (Arany János Támogatói Kör) is for our special supporters, and offers all of the above advantages of membership as well as one complimentary book per year written by a well-known Hungarian author, and free entrance for two to our Film Club ($100 per year).
