About

The Little English Library is a not-for-profit English children’s book project supporting young English speakers and young English Language Learners. The project was founded by Tatia Gruenbaum (me) at the end of 2013 and is based in the Netherlands. 

In April 2014, the first of by now 14 Little English School Libraries opened up in the Montessori +, a Dutch Primary school in Breda. To this day, it is still a busy little school library which by offers around 2000 English children´s books, magazines and audio-books suitable for children aged 0-12. Since then a lot has happened … do check the Initiatives and Awards page to see what we have been up to.

It is wonderful to see how this project is being met with enthusiasm and support by both the international and Dutch community, schools, teachers and of course children.  And I am also very grateful for all the support provided by the American Book Center in Amsterdam and numerous international publishers and authors.

If you are looking for more information or have any questions, do get in touch.

Many thanks

    This is really inspiring! I’ve been dreaming of setting up an English lending library in the Nijmegen area for years but never got beyond a book swap and the http://www.icon-nijmegen.com “library” (books in boxes in my back room). I’ve got the books; all I need now is the location and the manpower. Congratulations on a wonderful project.
