We offer the following departments:

The Literary Museum
..and soon to be opened The Sports Museum

Children's Department

Here children from 0 to 13 years can visit and borrow books, magazines, CD’s and DVD’s.
It is our intention to acquire e-books in the near future. We are working hard to achieve this goal.

Youth & Adult's department

This section is for individuals aged 13 and up. Here we have reading and viewing material available in Papiamentu, English, Spanish, Dutch and even in Mandarin.

Study Hall

Here students will find a quiet space to do their homework, work on school projects or study for exams.

National Documentation

The National Documentation section is in essence one of the main reasons our Library is named the Curaçao National Library.

Literary Museum

One of the main objectives of our Literary Museum is to give a plethora of information about the literature of Papiamentu.

Sports Museum

This museum will be dedicated to the history and evolution of sports in Curaçao. Stay tuned for more information.
