A Dutch Village libary

Here are some pictures from the local village library in Bergen op Zoom where we are staying for the Christmas vacation.  The library fits into the street scene and yet it has a very modern facade – which in fact created quite a controversy between the local government and the conservation movement in town. From the outside it looks more like a modern office or shop than a library.   On entering you immediately see that the shelving has been placed on large industrial wheels which creates a multi-purpose space.

Further along, in the next space, the books are on more traditional shelving, however the fiction section has been sorted by genre as well as having a part still by alphabet.  There are large icons on the walls, which are echoed later in the shelving to show where magazines, DVD’s, Books, CDs etc are located.
