Libraries of the Netherlands, Book 1

Within my first 10 minutes in Europe, I was presented with a library. And I knew I was gonna like that place even more than I’d expected.  
 
Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam has a cute little branch of the public library of Amsterdam.
 
 
 
Upon discovering it, I was completely jet-lagged and completely delighted.
 
Then, a couple of days later, my friend and I visited the Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam (the actual public library), which is one of the most charming libraries I’ve ever seen. 
 
They’ve got it goin’ on.
 
Here’s the children’s department…
 
 
 

 And the magazine section…

 

And the café… 

 

And an out-of-control librarian from the States straightening their beautifully-lit shelves.
