I’d Miss My Train

bibliotheek-op-het-station1

Rail travelers will never be short of reading material if they pass through the main train station in Haarlem, Netherlands. Two years ago de Bibliotheek op hef Station opened with 2,000 books and an interesting model. The collection is displayed more like a retail bookshop than a library and no title is older than two years old. The branch was designed in conjunction with Probiblio, the folks behind the brilliant library at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam.

  1. Dutch libraries are so cool!

    Thanks for paying attention to both Haarlem Train Station Library and Schiphol Airport Library. It might be interesting to know that the second photo from above is not the library itself but a means of advertising by using the windows of an empty store at an other part of the station.
