Love this library and will book a morning there to read and write when we make it to the Rijksmuseum.  Enjoy this short virtual tour, and remember:

You have two eyes and but one mouth

Let this be a signal and take heed

Not to talk here, but to read.

Now, isn’t that better than a librarian’s peremptory ‘Shhhhh!’? 

Note the iron structure and the airy skylight meaning people can read by natural light. Scroll through these ten facts about Cuypers’ library, also for the photos – I particularly like the two black and white photos, especially the wrought iron staircase photo taken in 1960.
