As the gateway to knowledge, literacy and creativity for the citizens of Curaçao, the National Library of Curaçao (BNK) prides itself on being a cultural center for the island where culture and literature meet. For this reason we also make it a priority to host an assortment of cultural and historical events and exhibitions. This includes our Siman di Ban Lesa (SBL), an annual fun-filled children’s book week we organize at the end of every year to promote reading among children.
