Surprisingly small amount of books in the library section, however, the exhibitions that are held in the building are always worth visiting. Some awesome views into the old town and a great place to watch the barges ploughing up and down the river.

this edifice is conveniently located in the great city of Maastricht ( few minutes walk from the central station) and provides visitors with a wide range of literature, resources & services. Of course there is reliable wifi for work or study

Centre Ceramique is a relatively new building that houses the city library but is also home to a Coffeelovers outlet and organizes exhibitions all through the year, including the annual World Press Exhibtion.

I have been here a couple of times with friends, just to work and use their WIFI. The location is convienent, and it's nice to cross the bridge and to have a connection with the old & new Maastricht.

Stopped by the library and got more than I expected. The library had an exhibition about the "Stumbling Stones" in Maastricht. The stones are located throughout Maastricht in front of the homes of people who were persecuted by the Nazi.

I guess it never occurred to us from the name or looking outside, this is really just a library. Albeit a great building, with some nice extras - model of Maastricht in 17xx and a nice cafe, and a decent looking library even, but it wasn't somewhere to learn about ceramics or such.

This is an excellent library in Maastricht, set on a lovely square beside the River Maas. The building is modern and welcoming, and feels warm and cosy inside. There is a café in the library, and plenty more nice ones around the square as well, which is all pedestrianised (including bikes of course- this is the Netherlands). I enjoyed being... More
