The article reports on the Hessian Library Law as a legal standard proposed by the political parties Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and the Free Democratic Party (FDP) in the state of Hesse, Germany. The proposed law was criticized by experts for two reasons. Critics question whether the law is appropriate for the actual situation and if the law runs contradictory to efforts to reduce bureaucracy. Also discussed are answers to the questions from a legal and political perspective.
