I’ve written a few posts about live entertainment and theatre and the joy of experience over shopping and buying things.
I’d forgotten to mention another great contributor to experience over ownership.
It’s a place to borrow books, films and other media so that one copy can then be enjoyed by many people. Brilliant recycling!
Behind these women drinking a nice glass of wine (in the library, in the evening!) there’s a little door.
You can just make out from my blurred handiwork the sign on the door. It says Filmzaal. Yes, there’s a cinema in our library.
It specialises in smaller budget films and interesting topics. It has two screenings a week and a healthy attendance.
