Utrecht Public Library

Utrecht Public Library is a place where you can read, borrow (e-)books and other (digital) resources and acquire knowledge. It’s also a place where you can work, hold meetings, study and relax. Together with residents of Utrecht and (local) partners, we organise hundreds of activities every month - ranging from film, theatre and concerts to craft workshops, language cafés and consultation hours for those who have questions related to finance, government, language or digital matters.
