The Gesellschaft Anna Amalia Bibliothek e.V. (Friends of the Duchess Anna Amalia Library) was founded as a non-profit organisation in 2003 with the aim of supporting the Duchess Anna Amalia Library both materially and ideationally. By the end of 2009, the association had 379 members. During the first few years after the fire in September 2004, the main priority was to collect donations for the reconstruction and restoration of the badly damaged inventory. Since 2006, the association has been holding school seminars at the Duchess Anna Amalia Library, initially for Weimar’s grammar schools, then in the form of exchange projects (with Wolfenbüttel and Marbach) and finally European seminars for German-speaking pupils abroad.
It also organises lecture series on the themes of the year as well as supporting exhibitions, publications and other activities arranged by the Duchess Anna Amalia Library. It publishes the journal »Supra Libros« and promotes cooperation with other library associations.
