Characteristic of Bibliotheek Alkmaar Centrum (The Library Alkmaar Centre) are the bright colours and the radical exposure of the media in different themes. The interior looks more like a bookshop. There are clearly marked areas for films, games and medialab for example. The staff members are active towards the customers. The atmosphere is welcoming and easy-going. There are high fees for users but the use of wifi in the library is free. FOUR stars: Very good.
