Welcome to the Amstelland Library

Welcome to the English part of the Bibliotheek Amstelland website. At this moment, we only have limited information in English. Of course, we would be happy to inform you in the libraries or by phone or mail should you have any questions or need for information.

Learn Dutch

Taalcafé: learn to speak Dutch by putting it into practice!

Do you find it a little difficult to have a conversation in Dutch, and would you like to practice together with others? In the Taalcafé you can do just that.

Join a small group of people together with a volunteer, and practice talking Dutch. Talk about anything you like. And it’s in a relaxed environment, with none of the pressures of a learning programme.

Storytelling in the library

Every Wednesday in each Amstelland library from 15.30 hrs till 16.00 hrs for children aged 2-6 years. More info under 'agenda' and look for 'Voorlezen'

See you in the library!
