Story and craft time...

The Reading Pier will tell stories in English. In the morning for children up to 4 years old, in the afternoon also for children from 4 years old.

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, Persian, Polish, Romanian and Ukranian children’s books.

In 2022 the collection will be expanded with Indian, Korean, Turkish and Spanish children’s books.
