Story and craft time...

In the library, we tell stories in different languages,often accompanied by craft-works.

The agenda


Bring your baby or toddler to the library and pick up a free ‘Boekstart’ case for them. Childrens memberships are free.


The youth section has an extensive collection of books: picture books, first books for learning to read and challenging books for the advanced reader. There are also interesting magazines.


Internationale Children’s Book Collection

In collaboration with The Reading Pier, the library sourced a wide range of English language children’s books.

In addition, the library has an international collection in collaboration with the Heritage Language Education Network. The collection offers a wide variety of languages: Bulgarian, Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese, Persian, Polish, Romanian, Korean, Spanish and Ukranian children’s books.

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.
