Situation Kunst hosts a library at the 2006 opened extension building. The stock of books mainly focuses on modern and contemporary art, with the emphasis on the collection of Situation Kunst. Furthermore, there are monographs on important artists of the 20th century. Most of the books are already listed in the library system of the Ruhr University Bochum (OPAC). Generous donations by the represented artists, Silke and Alexander von Berswordt-Wallrabe, Susanne Breidenbach, Reinhard Klimmt and Peter Waldeis together with substantial contribution by Ingeborg Fried let the library grow up to a volume of 4000 books. The steadily growing stock is inventoried by students of the Ruhr University Bochum.
