A network of libraries


The main library is located in Ghent city centre, near the old town. In addition, the Ghent Library De Krook banner covers no fewer than 14 branches: cosy, small-scale places with a surprisingly wide range of books, CDs, magazines, comic strips and films. Each branch has a local service and a peripheral programme tailored to the needs of its neighbourhood.


The De Krook network also includes a mobile library, a library bike and the Ghent prison library.


The network serves to spread the motto of Ghent Library De Krook – to live and to learn – to residents throughout the various districts and suburbs of the city.
