A library on wheels

A library on wheels

Cities for culture

BiebBus is a truck-container that travels from school to school, offering 7,000 books and a reading room.

The Zaan region is part of the Amsterdam metropolitan area and consists of a series of smaller villages. On their own they can’t finance a full-time library but the ‘bibliobus’ is a viable alternative.

The book mobile is always placed near primary schools – the schools collaborate with the library service: they anticipate on its schedule, provide electricity and other facilities for the library personnel. This particular Biebbus in the Zaan region has twenty stops and remains at the same school for a whole day. Kids can come in during school time or during after school reading sessions.
