In July 2007 the new Amsterdam Public Library opened its doors to the public, officially becoming the largest library in Europe. Designed by architect Jo Coenen & Co, the 28 000m² building includes 7 collection floors and provides storage area for books, a theatre, a readers’ cafe and a restaurant overlooking the city.
