Check out this NY Times article on Schiphol’s new Airport Library. The library has 1,200 books in different languages, all of which are by Dutch authors or are on subjects relating to the country’s culture and history. Isn’t it a wonderful idea? Instead of spending money on buying something to occupy your time during a layover, you can read a book for free and learn a little bit of the country you’re sitting in. I’m a big fan of libraries so I’ll have to take a shot of it next time I’m in Holland.
