In honor of its 225th birthday, the KB created a video series about the journey a medieval manuscript undertakes when it enters our collection. The series offers a glimpse at what goes on behind the scenes at the KB with our experts explaining each step from the manuscript's entry to making it available to our members.
In 2022, libraries organised more activities than ever before. The number of visits to libraries also rose. These are among the findings of an annual study conducted by the KB into the state of Dutch public libraries in 2022.
The architectural firm Office Winhov has presented the first sketches of the new book repository that the KB National Library of the Netherlands is set to build. These so-called Provisional Designs focus on security and sustainability.
