A Glimpse into Amsterdam’s Public Libraries

amsterdam1

On a recent trip to the Netherlands I had the opportunity to visit one of Amsterdam’s public libraries. Public libraries in Amsterdam are collectively known as Openbare (“public”) Bibliotheek (“library”), or OBA. The largest of these is the Centrale (“central”) Bibliotheek (“library”) located near the Amsterdam Centraal Station.

The Central Library opened its doors in 2008. It was designed by Jo Coenen, and cost around € 80 million. This state of the art building houses half million books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, games and blu-rays, more than 1,000 seats and 490 internet computers, an auditorium, an exhibition room, the Library Museum, and the Gerard Reve Museum spread out over 10 floors manned by a staff of 200.

I was surprised to see AmsterdamFM broadcasting live on the first floor. There is another radio station, OBA Live, located on the fourth floor. It really is a beautiful design. I can see why in 2012 it was voted as the best library in the Netherlands. For more information, check out their website at http://www.oba.nl/home.html.
