we went to the opening of the new library here in Amsterdam
Here's a very long video they made of the official opening on Saturday.

This is a great view from the ground floor , behind this were the escalators which made you feel like you were in a luxurious department store....where unfortunately you have to bring the goods back

When I was 6 years old I was strongly against that idea... I didn't want to bring back books that I loved..... after a while I saw the benefits..... it's not practical to want to own everything you like. I hope this new library will grow on me the way my childhood library did

Architect : Jo Coenen & Co
