Visitors to Ghent Library De Krook are also visiting the Ghent hotspot for students of all ages. There are 325 work and study places scattered here and there: quiet individual spaces, tables with bar stools for social learning, or seats by the window overlooking the Scheldt. Although the free WiFi remains the crucial decider in all of this brain activity.

 

The library is there for everyone, so a lot of care goes into maximising accessibility. At the constantly staffed digital talent point on the second floor, anyone can ask basic (or even not-so-basic) questions about digital applications.

 

Almost half of children in Ghent don’t speak Dutch at home. Which is why Ghent Library De Krook regularly organises digital homework support, with volunteers helping children to find information on the internet for their school projects.

 

Tired of school, unemployed or thinking about changing career? Talk to De Stap, the advisory point for education and training.

 

Finally, for young and old alike, there is a packed programme of over 1,000 activities per year – with lectures, workshops, demonstrations, performances and more.
