De Krook Library, Ghent

The Library Buildings in Europe website records examples of good and interesting library buildings throughout Europe; it is a benchmarking tool for all those involved in new or refurbished library building projects including librarians, architects or any other professionals.

The aim is to inspire and support anyone working on a library building project – a new building, an extension, a renovation, or a reworking of interior spaces. The wide variety of case studies will enable those involved in such projects to pick up on new trends, to share knowledge and experience, and to learn from, and make contact with, each other.

Members of the LIBER Architecture Group (LIBER LAG) are delighted to offer this project as a tool to stimulate innovative ideas and new approaches to transforming the library model in the 21st century.
