Eindhoven Library, HLE Network and The Reading Pier have partnered to create the International Children's Book Collection. Thanks to the contributions of the participating language groups, there are currently books in Italian, Chinese, French, Romanian, Bulgarian, Persian, Ukrainian, Polish, Korean, Spanish and English.
The International Children's Book Collection includes books for children aged 0 to 12. The books can be checked out at no cost since an Eindhoven Library card is free for children aged 0 to 18.
