Libraries in the Netherlands

Welcome at!

For our international colleagues and all interested in the development of libraries in the Netherlands, we have collected here some basic information on the library landscape and its activities. Furthermore there are interesting items such as library architecture and The Hague – World Library Capital. Practical information on preparing visits, and an overview of Dutch library organisations are included.

We hope it will help you when you would like to visit, study or write about Dutch libraries.
