More than 5000 people have already visited the Haarlem Station library, which opened its doors just over a month ago. 

The library, which has the backing of Dutch Railways and the provinces of North and South Holland, is located in the old signal box on the station’s central platform. The 150 square metre building has a collection of 1500 magazines and books, ranging from literature to comics. The library is open during the morning and evening rush hour, five days a week.
