Free books around the 'Globe' in Forum Library

Published on
March 20, 2017

This summer Forum library will be refurbished to create more additional quiet study places. Only one copy of a book will be stored in the basement, so double ones can be taken for free. The books are placed around the Globe on the second Floor of the Forum Library.

Are the books really for free?

Yes they are, but you can give a voluntary contribution to the Anne van den Ban Fund. A box for your donations is situated beside the books, but you can also donate online via de website of the Anne van den Ban Fund. The Anne van den Ban Fund allows promising students from developing countries to follow an education at Wageningen University.

Moving books to create 160 extra study places

Maybe you noticed that some book shelfs on the third and fourth floor are almost empty, because  we already started removing  books to the basement (STACKS). We're creating more quiet study places by moving our collection. You can read more about the refurbishment in this news item.
