These include books, newspapers and journals, manuscripts, rare books, music scores, as well as maps, prints, posters, letters from the front, photographs, microforms and electronic media. Over 1 million media items are borrowed per year.

The WLB cooperates with partners in the cultural, scientific and commercial sectors both within Germany and abroad. It offers a manifold programme of exhibitions and lectures, in which it is supported by the Württembergische Bibliotheksgesellschaft – Freunde der Württembergischen Landesbibliothek e.V.
