Schiphol Airport Library: get in there

May 28, 2012 dj

Amsterdam pioneered the concept of the airport library just two years ago and we at EBR think it’s a brilliant idea (Singapore agree as they now have one too). Jeanine Deckers, the head librarian at Schiphol Airport Library, joined us this morning to tell us more about the initiative.

We now know why the resources focus on Dutch culture primarily, how much money Jeanine gets to spend on the books and films each year, what is on her shopping list and the where the library is located – in the non-Schengen area, past security, near the Rijksmusuem area.

To find out more, see www.airportlibrary.nl and don’t forget to follow Jeanine onĀ  for updates.
