This is the library in our town of Hilversum, which is about 30 Kms from Amsterdam. Though a vast majority of the books are in Dutch, there is also a small collection of English books. I come to the library with my kids and spend an enjoyable hour or two here with them.
The most wonderful thing is the cosy corner they have made for the little ones where I sit with my daughter and read out to her. The library has a small theatre, which can be rented to do performances for schools or to conduct talks about books.Some are quite fascinating! To keep up with the modern times they have installed some laptops with few games. There’s also a cafeteria inside the library. The library charges a one time fee of 40 Euros for adults and 10 Euros for children.
