About De Esdoorn’s library

Our library has grown into an amazing collection of over a thousand books. It is a mix of beautiful old gems and brand new books. In addition to reading books, our collection also includes comic books, audio books, games, cookbooks, letter cases and those who still need them, DVD and CD-ROMs.

As a student from De Esdoorn, you also get access to an online membership with the Dutch public library via De Esdoorn. With that membership you can borrow and read books on an e-reader or tablet.

A large part of the library consists of toddler and nursery books, with well-known titles and authors such as Miffy, Sesame Street, Pinkeltje and Kikker, but also many unknown books that are very worthwhile to read. In December our librarian will also bring Sinterklaas and Christmas books.

Before and after the Christmas, Spring and Summer holidays, our librarian sends an email to all parents to request the return of the loaned books that have not yet been returned. Hopefully you can enjoy the collection at your leisure.

For a yearly donation (minimum $25) you can now borrow books via our librarian. The collection of around 1000+ books is the best collection of Dutch books for children in Canada (that we know of). Any donations and payments go to penningmeester@esdoorn.ca
