Since 1859, the Rotterdamsch Leeskabinet has maintained a specialist collection with historical works and a focus on Rotterdam, but also with contemporary literature. As a member of the Leeskabinet you are granted access to a first-rate private library and contribute to the preservation of this cultural heritage.
You will be able to enjoy the reading room, where you will find the newest books, reference works, and magazines. About six times a year you’ll receive an invitation to a lecture on history, literary fiction, art and culture. These are mostly in Dutch, but our interviews are subtitled in English. In addition, the Leeskabinet annually organizes excursions exclusively for its members.
Members of the Leeskabinet may also borrow books from Erasmus University Library and consult the journals from this collection.
