On our walk back to Amsterdam Centraal from the NEMO Science Centre we came upon the Amsterdam Bibliotheek (library). At first we were unsure if this was a library because the building was huge. Upon walking inside it was assured this six-story building was, in fact, a library.
The first floor was the children’s department. This is the point when we wished we could read Dutch. What a treat for children to sit for stories in this library. Along with more books that any child could read during their youth, it had a treehouse and an adorable dollhouse based on a series of books.
The top floor’s café patio was almost as impressive as the children’s section; it provided additional gorgeous views of Amsterdam.
The Bibliotheek is worth a stop when you're in Amsterdam.
