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.
