As well as loving the pools here, I am a huge fan of the libraries. We are regulars at Winterthur city library. It is open all day Monday to Saturday, has a huge children's floor in the basement, which includes an English section, dual language books, films, Nintendo games, etc, lots of imaginative seating areas and a teenage section with fantastic comics and graphic novels in all languages. There are also regular children's story sessions in German and English.
But the point of this blog post is that while shopping at Töss Zentrum today (which includes a fab Turkish treasure trove of a shop where you can find all those things you can't find elsewhere) I decided to take a snoop in the library there, which is situated on the upper floor to the left of the car park and is included on my Winterthur library card. In the entrance there were several boxes with books for sale - where I found a hard back version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, the new illustrated version, FOR JUST 1CHF! There, a bargain is possible in Switzerland.
