Muntpunt – Hoofdstedelijke Openbare Bibliotheek


Muntpunt is a reading and learning point for curious minds. It is an information point for anyone who wants to live, work, study or live in Brussels. A second home for those who want to relax or meet new people. For those who want to surf or shelter, even in good weather. And for everyone who is looking for or wants to tell a story, including us. Welcome!

Muntpunt is an initiative of the Flemish Community Commission (VGC) and the Flemish government.
