The library bears the name of the writer of Fischland, Käthe Miethe. She was born in 1893 and grew up in an educated household. Her father, Prof. Dr. Adolf Miethe, one of the developers of color photography, bought a summer house in Althagen. Thus the daughter Käthe came into contact with the country and its people and learned to love them. In 1939, Käthe Miethe moved to Althagen full time. Her countless books, articles and reportages reflect the life of another generation on the Fischland. She knew how to listen to the stories of the locals and to process them in her works.
The library's collection includes the following of her works:
"Das Fischland" 1948, "Unter eigenem Dach" 1949, "Bark Magdalene 1951, "Die Flut" 1953, "Auf großer Fahrt" 1953, "Der erste Rang" 1957, "Rauchfahnen am Horizont" 1959 and "...und keine Möwe fliegt allein" 1960. The writer died in 1961 and is buried in the cemetery in Wustrow.
