American Corners are true partnerships with the local organization, because host institution personnel staff the Corners.

Each American Corner features an English language collection of American fiction and reference books on U.S. government, history, culture. Corners also provide access to information about the U.S. through supervised Internet access, audio, and video recordings of American films and documentaries.
