Surprising architecture of yesteryear in the Amsterdam Tolstraat. Originally built as a theosophical temple in 1927, it was primarily known as the cinema Cinetol to the folks of Amsterdam. A little over 25 years ago the public library opened up a branch here. The stylish interior, reaching into the air, invites silence and a search for inspiration, fitting the current function as a book temple. But also for the non-bookworm, it could be an almost spiritual revelation to walk around with gentle pace, dreamily getting immersed in this monumental building.
See here the opening hours.
